Today's post is brought to you via frustration. My pet peeve in genealogy is when you find someone that has compiled a tree online (or in a book) and the information gives you a date and a place, but no citation. Well, citations would be nice, but I should easily be able to find the records, so I go looking for the information in the place the event supposedly took place.
AND I CAN'T FIND A RECORD OF IT HAPPENING IN THAT PLACE!
Like it is not difficult enough to have record losses and non-existant records, now I am chasing records that may exist but I am not sure of the location?! Oiy vey.
