Yep Its That Free Genealogy Thing AGAIN!
The other day I was having a conversation with this person and that person stated that they were irritated because a library wanted $2 for an obituary copy. This same person later complained that they didn't have some information from this certain library because the library wouldn't provide it to them without cost. Then the following statement followed...
"I don't spend money on genealogy."
Hang on a second. So you want to sit back and let everyone get this for you, get that for you, but you don't want to pay for ANYTHING? So all of us are supposed to just step up and spend our time & resources to help you because you don't pay for genealogy? Excuse me? So if I travel to this library where you want information I'm supposed to make copies and give them to you? So it's okay for me to spend my money on YOUR genealogy but you won't? Excuse me but there's something wrong with this!
If you haven't gotten it by now - your attitude isn't impressive. In fact its downright selfish.
