About the Life Stories Project
Launched November 11, 2011
For years, Genealogy Today has offered a variety of databases,
transcriptions and individual documents, each providing different facts about
our ancestors. The Life Stories Project developed as a way to bridge
together these different sources for individuals.
Think of each web page in this area as a digital file folder, with a
convenient summary on top. Sources for the documents that are stitched
together will all be listed under the References heading.
One of the key differences between the Life Stories Project
and other online biographical collections is that we do NOT include
information that has not been substantiated with an original document.
Visitors may contribute information to a given timelines, but
must do so by providing us with a copy (scan or photocopy) of relevant documents.
There are no requirements for an ancestor to be eligible for
inclusion in this project, other that they be deceased, and their
dates of birth and death are documented. We will accept requests to
add ancestors where these conditions have not been met; however, they
will not appear in this area of the web site until the missing
data pieces are collected.
The Life Stories Project is not intended to be a "memorial" type
service, and we will not accept tribute-oriented materials. You may
freely link to any of the timelines posted on this web site, but we
ask that you do not copy the information that our researchers have
carefully collected (except for your own personal research purposes).
