What Is Information: A Start...

My post on "What Is Information?" didn't generate any response, but that doesn't mean I haven't been thinking about it and that I don't think it's worth contemplating.

Genealogists throw around the word "information" without really ever saying what it is.

I'm thinking that genealogical information (or a statement) places a person in a specific place at a specific time--and sometimes in relationship to another person.

But that definition is fluid. I don't have it worked out yet. Comments are welcomed!
