Bad Query Karma

"Bad" genealogical queries reduce the chance that someone is actually able to help you on your problem.

Here are a few of the more blatant ones:

  • I'm looking for Grandma.
  • Send me everything you have on the Jones family in St. Louis, Missouri.
  • I need an obituary for Henry.
  • My Great-great-great-grandma came from Germany in the 1830s. Who were her parents? I don't know where she was born.
  • Can you send me a list of all the cemeteries in your county?
And so it goes.

Add your own bad query in the comments.
