Why can I not seem to find my paternal great-grandfather’s Ohio Death Certificate on the family search site? He died in 1924, well within the range that has been digitized and posted. Surname: HOUSE. I’ve even gone so far as to enter in variations: Howse, Hows, Hous, Louse, Lows, etc. I’ve just entered the date of death – Oct. 1, 1924 and the county – or one or the other. I’ve had no luck at all.
When people upload family information to the Rootsweb World Connect database, do they actually pay attention to dates? I only use the information as an undocumented source until I am able to find my own documentation; however, when the parents died 10 to 20 years prior to the birth of the reported children – something is very wrong.
How come there are some blogs – which have been on my favorites list – that my computer doesn’t like? They won’t get out of “download” mode. I can see the blog, but I can’t scroll or even click out of it. I have to Control+Alt+Delete to close it out. I’m now making sure I read those blogs via my Google Reader – but there isn’t anywhere that I can leave a comment without going to the actual blog.
Why do people send me emails that give me some information but then end it by saying that they will mail me more information – pictures, copies of documents, etc. and then never do? Shouldn’t they have the decency to reply back after my 2nd or third email asking if everything is alright or are they still sending it, to give me a straight answer instead of ignoring me?
