We all have them or encounter them sooner or later in our genealogy research.
You know, the one person, male or female, who knows everything there is to know on your line, and no matter what you say or do, they won't share anything - but insist they have it all & know it all...
Yep we all have 'em. I've decided best way to handle them is just to blow them off, not respond, delete emails & go find my own information!
Mine was gracious enough to tell me - "when you've proven you actually belong to this line, we'll chat...." and that would be when? Oh yeah.... WHEN H**L FREEZES OVER!!!
Note to self - this is my time line (that H**L comment) not the wormbrain's....
Reason this came up - I was working in one of my main surname files & I had included an email from said wormbrain in said file so I didn't make the mistake of contacting said wormbrain a second time!
Oh well - Check back Monday when we do "Relatively Speaking - Cousins Who Blog" here on GenealogyFrameOfMind. Its my turn on Monday and I've got a great census record for you to look at. Have a great weekend -
