Genealogy is a huge word that is the study of one's family.
Here are some cool rules to make it easier:
- Pics or get out
- get someone to proof your work (especially for translations)
- just cause it is on a website doesn't make it always right
-Professionals have designations or/and government-issued titles.
-remember you buy someone's time and skills- respect that- all of that is optional
-There is always something to prove.
-There is always another source
-Not everyone is honest
- Eat and bio break when going down the rabbit hole
-Respect is a two-way street and it takes years to build with seconds to drop off
-In the event of a fire, divorce or worst case what are you willing to lose?
