In Reply to: Trabue and Haskin in VA and KY by Sandy Smith of 275

I am breaking a recent rule which I made for myself of no longer posting on these forums.
I have wasted too much time trying to help frequently unappreciative people and arguing with amateur researchers who are willing to accept unproven & unsubstantiated data because it is printed in an old book or article. Genealogical standards have changed and much higher standards are required. From what I have been told by
D.A.R. members that organization will no longer accept most of the old sources. The
Haskins lineage was published in "The Huguenot" #34 which is the publication of the Huguenot Society of Manakin, Virginia.
As I recall (I can't find my copy) it also contains an article on the ancestry of Antoine Trabue in France. Both articles were written by me and contain references.
In the Haskins article, an argument has recently arisen as to whether or not Joseph Goode is a son of John Goode of Whitby; I have also found additional deeds from Mary
(Haskins)Redford to her sons. A prominent author & genealogist has recently completed an article on the Hill family of Henrico Co., Va. which gives the ancestry of Elizabeth. He informed me that he intended to publish it so you might watch it in PERSI.
