Steve-
Thanks for your information about the location of Emma Young Golightly’s grave.
I agree with you about too much misinformation being cast about on the internet. I also believe that the electronic media is a good tool for spreading intolerance for others who may not see things exactly like we do. I will provide my family with your postings as excellent examples of both. (smiley-face)
I believe that most of us using the forum want to provide our family with a documented family tree and pass this on to the future generation our true family history.
We want for them to have an understanding of what it took to survive in those days. We want our future generations to be proud of their ancestors, no matter their blood mixture, lineage or occupation. From the their works as coal miners, house wives and Mothers, service men and women, farmers and other occupations, we owe our existence and the growth of our great nation.
In some cases, the only information we have is family oral history, a few documents and photos. I know what is was like to grow up in the middle of the last century, my Father told me what it was like to be a child at the beginning of the century and what his Father told him about life in the middle of the 1800s. We should look for data to support our history and to be careful in separating fact from lore.
If during our combined research, we find that we can finally join the DAR, Choctaw tribe or discover a legendary hero, King or famous genealogists in our family tree, so be it. (another smiley face)
I will save your highly instructional email to assist me in my future research.
Gosh, now we both feel better.
