From: <KGruba -at- aol.com> Subject: Re: England Whitneys database Date: Wed, 25 Dec 1996 18:23:17 -0500 Allan and all, I believe it is critical that, as a group, we maintain a high level of credibility by safeguarding the publishing of unproven information. I remember some discussion (printed and filed all the email) regarding the English line but, for some reason (a head in the clouds?), I had not realized the difficulty was in the second English generation. I also remember the work Jon did comparing our English information . . . quite a lot of work . . . I would like to find the answer to our problem and like the idea of publishing it with provisos but know that the "conditions" are quickly dropped or forgotten and all that is remembered is "Oh, I got it from the Whitney group!" There goes our reputation for accuracy. Documentation is so important. Accuracy is one of the elements that makes this crazy avocation challenging and so rewarding. Perhaps the database can be sent via gedcom to those who want it but left unpublished? I'll support the group's concensus. A very happy and successful New year to all! Karen
