EWGS & Volunteers

 "Volunteers are not paid....... not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless."

Don't know who crafted that quote but it's really wonderful. Without the many volunteers who keep pushing EWGS forward there would not be an EWGS. 

THANK YOU to all the wonderful EWGS volunteers!!

Since you were so good as to read the above, I'll share some of Bill Dollarhide's 50 Genealogy Rules:  (1)  Treat the brothers and sisters of your ancestor as equals.... even if some of them were in jail.   (2) Death certificates are rarely filled in by the person who died.  (3)  When visiting a funeral home, wear old clothes, no make-up, and look like you have about a week to live...the funeral director will give you anything you ask for if he thinks you may be a customer soon.
