    1890s-early 1900s. Especially on the frontier, it doesn't look right for before 1840.

    I've had some difficult people. One woman on ancestry.com said "you're no relation of mine" because her tree didn't include the sibling I descend from, even though town records and a published genealogy show the descent.

    I've also had one "family association" deny me membership because my ancestor wasn't in the published genealogy from 1885 or something. Again, I've got town records, Revolutionary War pension files, etc. They don't care. So the hell with 'em.

    But many more people have been helpful and happy to hear from me.

    Republicans...think the American standard of living is a fine thing--so long as it doesn't spread to all the people. And they admire the Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it. Harry S. Truman
