Thank you for the offer, I do have the library edition here at home, I seldom use it for real research, I did my entire website with out the aid of ancestry or books that other people wrote, I do it the old fashioned way, FHC films, documents, letters to municipalities and churches, I will be out of luck when I get to "non recorded history" I use it to make those nice little print outs of the census info if it correct, and to save the image, because back when i got the info from the FHC they didn't have the ability to put images on our flash drives. I have found way too much misinformation and mispellings in my family alone on ancestry I just can't trust it as a single source. Thank again,
As far an the porn site etc goes, Most people ought to have enough sense to know it is either a virus or at the least that it isn't you, if they don't, then they must have begun on the internet yesterday.

I asked because some of my information was up at a website and the information was wrong, I was wondering where people got that informatin as well as my name, when I clicked on to contact the person who posted the, it should have taken me to myself, but It took me to some one named "Caliandris", and I saw that one of the names they were researching was Spivey, so I thought you might either be this person or know them.
In order for me to contact this Caliandris I would have to join ancestry or someplace, which annoyed me because they woud be "selling" me incorrect information that I was quoted as posting. It is similar to ancestry I think where you have to belong to be put in contact with each other. I was hoping it was you then I could just ask where you got the info and have you correct it. I don't mind my information being ourthere, but I like it to be correct.... Now I wonder who this person is????
