I would love to help each and every one of you, but I simply
can't. If you have information to contribute, please let me
know as I will be glad to post it here. You also need to be
aware that although my ancestors were from Lanesborough, Massachusetts,
I live in the Western United States. I am posting everything
available to me here (primarily contributed by kind souls),
but I can't do personal research.
Here are some examples of personal research:
"Grandpa Smith died in Lennox around 1920. He was married
to Mary Jones who was the dtr of Davy Jones and Mary's cousin
was in prison and her 2nd cousin Jane Smith was related to the
King of Clubs or maybe it was the Kingdom of Lilliput, who might
have migrated from Boston in 1741, or 1745 or maybe 1800. And
his cousin Don Johnson was the father-in-law to the former governor
Ed Miller of NY at the turn of the century. What should I do
A. Sorry, but I don't know and I can't
wade through all that gibberish. You should probably join the
mailing list and post your query there. Also post your query
on the Rootsweb Query Boards.
"Do you have a list of all the churches in Berkshire
A. Did you search the entire site? I have
posted everything I have on the site. I even put a site search
engine on the home page to help you out.
"Help! I'm a beginner and I need to find some information
on Grandpa Jones, who lived in Massachusetts somewhere"
A. You need to go to a beginner's site
such as Rootsweb
Site for Beginners. You need to be systematic when you are
working on your family tree and you have to document everything.
So start things out right because it will save you gobs of time
down the road.
"I have transcribed some old death records for Berkshire
County. Would you post them on this site?"
A. You bet! And you'll receive good
karma and a nice credit on the page for your kindness.
you read all of the above and understand it, please email me
at MAGenWeb@yahoo.com. Thanks!
