Great expectations: Not a worthwhile genealogy attribute

DearREADERS,
Thanks to a good friend, Jean Palmer, who forwarded this posting and comments "MYRT, I THINK THIS IS A GOOD EXAMPLE OF WANTING SOMEONE ELSE TO DO YOUR RESEARCH!"

Ol' Myrt nearly fainted at the thought of someone making the following posting to an Ancestry.com message board that automatically cross-posted to the corresponding genealogy mailing list at RootsWeb. How anyone can expect others to just do the research for them is beyond me. Clearly the 1900 US federal census and a reasonable county history would be easy to access if one TRULY wished to find out more about these ancestors. Read for yourself:

Seeking all information on these people, etc. who are mentioned in the 1899 Diary of Orval H. CROSIER of Rutland, VT:
  • BREED, H., Jr.
  • BULLOCK
  • CENTURY CLUB 10/16/1899
  • CHAMBERLAIN
  • CHEVEY, Harry
  • CLARK, C.H.
  • CROSIER, Rufus + Chloe STACY CROSIER
  • DAVIES rented house
  • FOX, Dr.
  • FULLER photographer died 1/5/1899
  • GARRET sold house
  • HOLLAND, J.
  • HOUGHTON, H.
  • LYONS [LIONS], Oscar

  • MOREHOUSE, WILL [m. 1896 Nellie SHEDD]

If we could have it served to us on a silver platter, what fun would it be?

Happy family tree climbing!
