    1. [GENEALOGY-PUBLISHING] Research Publishing Company
    2. ldo ldo
    3. Hi, I have a copy of a letter sent by my G. Uncle Frederick William Osmond to his nephew (my cousin) in 1955. In it he mentions the "family tree/papers" and that if his nephew wanted the information, he should contact the Research Publishing Company, 52, Lincoln's Inn Fields, London, WC2 and they would give him full particulars. My cousin did not follow up so when I recieved the letter I decided I would. I have found references online to the RPC up until 1978 and I am guessing that the company went out of business or perhaps was bought by another. From what little I have been able to find on the internet, RPC published small numbers of a person's family history and I believe my Great Grandmother, Ann/Annie Osmond nee Jarvis, may have had one published or just submitted her manuscript. I have been in touch (e-mail) with Local Studies at Camden who had no information and found nothing at LMA's online catalogue. Any help or leads would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Lynne.

    3. Thank you both, Lorraine and Beryl, for your help. When nothing happened a few hours after I posted my question, I decided to reword the whole paragraph, so my descendants wouldn't second-guess my grammar. I don't know why I didn't think of that sooner, except that this project has been in the works since 1999, I'm sick of it, and my brain has turned to mush.

    3. Hi Lila You've probably opened a can of worms, but I say 'whom'. Which barber? The one whom Ben described, etc. Or you could avoid it altogether by saying, 'the barber, described by Ben as, etc'. Now I'll duck for cover before this learned lot.

    2. Lila Garner
    3. I hope this is the correct list on which to ask a question about grammar. I subbed to the list a long time ago, then my book was on hold for a long time, and now it's nearly finished. The sentence set out by * * in the paragraph below contains my problem: His hair was still platinum blond, and he was called "Whitey" in the Navy. *When he reported for his military haircut the 'barber', who Ben described as a kid just out of basic training and without barbering skills, told him that he had beautiful hair, and asked him if he'd like to keep it.* Of course he answered that he would, and the barber said, "Hold out your hands." The hair, of course, came off. I'm not sure whether I need 'who' or 'whom'. Whom feels right, but it actually, when I diagram it in my head, it doesn't look like the objective case. My brain is getting mushy--this is on page 707 of my book, and I'm sick of it. Help, please! Lila

    3. Hello! I have recently subscribed to your list. Could you please tell me more about it? I help my mother with her genealogy. She has been working on my fathers and her families histories for near on 30 years. I would love to be able to help them to put together a book of their own, though writing children's books is what i do mainly.

    1. Sharing your GEDCOMs
    2. Lorraine Eachus
    3. People downloading your published family tree and not giving you credit has been a hotly debated topic in Rootsweb Review Newsletter. You can handle it several ways. If you upload your GEDCOM to WorldConnect, you can do as I do. I upload with no sources. If people want the sources, I will gladly share it with them if they ask. Using this method, hopefully I will find more relations that I am looking for. There is also an option to not allow GEDCOM downloading. I have found that I can trim my research to what people are looking for and send the GEDCOM to them for only that part they are interested in. In most cases, do not expect any reciprocation.

    1. Re: GEDCOM import credit
    2. To Listers I know the feelings here in a slightly different way. I had my family printed into a hard back book, costing a few thousand dollars. One copy I sold the lady put the entire book on another researchers computer and never mentions it was from my book. Just one of those things that happens and we can't do a thing about it.

    3. It's not that I want the credit, but in their sources are listed things like "Death certificate - in my possession", "personal knowledge", emails I received, "interview with such and such", etc that are only applicable to myself.

    1. GEDCOM import credit
    2. Marlaina Fritz Barr
    3. Hi List, I would sure appreciate help on handling a situation. I received some information from someone also researching a family line and they were very open and sent me some sources. Now I find they have imported my GEDCOM on the world tree on their website and world tree, importing all my sources with the appearance they are theirs with no mention they imported my GEDCOM. This person was very nice and helpful, but really should have just entered my GEDCOM imported as their sources and not my actual sources. Any suggestions how to handle this? Example from one entry: My GEDCOM entry: http://worldconnect.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=marlabarr&id=I0046 Their copies: http://awt.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=dugb&id=I12061 http://home.att.net/~dugb/b127.htm#P12053 Thanks for any help, Marlaina Fritz Barr

    3. Hi, I uploaded a gedcom to the World Tree at Ancestry.com well over 24 hours ago and as yet it does not show up in search there. Anyone know if it takes longer than that to show up in search? I can bring the gedcom up by clicking on it in my trees so it is there, just not in search. I have Linux so there is a possiblity it did not import properly. Thanks, Marlaina Fritz Barr
