The Importance of Sharing

Sharing genealogical information with others allows you to:

  • preserve information,
  • catch mistakes,
  • have a backup,
  • collaborate with others.

Keeping all your genealogical information to yourself may seem like a good idea, but researching in total isolation increases the chance you don’t find what you are looking for.

Riley (the dog in the illustration) may be more “in-your-face” about sharing than genealogists are, but it’s still a good reminder.
