Michael John Neill's genealogy website. Things that cross my path, general research suggestions, and whatever else ...with a little bit of attitude. I don't post "news" just to post it, never post a press release (edited or otherwise), don't feign excitement, and pretty much say what I think.

Two More Concerns About the ELCA Records at Archives.com
This will be short and hopefully I am overlooking something.
At this point, in the ELCA records at the Archives.com website, I am unable to:
easily determine what churches are in the database
determine what time period the records actually cover
From the perspective of conducting sound genealogical research, this makes effective use of the records difficult, makes the adequate citing of research problematic, and does not easily allow me to know whom I should really expect from the database.
There's another word that applies, but I'll leave that up to the reader to discern.
