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.
