I am an amateur genealogist, therefore the opinions I express and the information I post on this website may contain inaccuracies.  The material published on Journeys in Genealogy is accurate to the best of my knowledge.

Due to the nature of transcription and potential human error we cannot guarantee the information presented is 100% accurate. Every effort was made to ensure the quality of the material presented.

The information presented is not intended to be used as a source document. Instead, the information is a place to find clues and information to aid in further research. You are strongly encouraged to check the primary source for accuracy and validity as mistakes are made by all of us (especially the early record keepers).

If you find an error or discrepancy in the information provided, please contact us via the form. We will then make an attempt to correct the error or note your discrepancy along with the original data. We do not change history, therefore we will not change our original transcriptions unless we are absolutely certain that the data posted is a transcription error.

Any comments posted on Journeys in Genealogy by contributors are the sole responsibility of that person, i.e. the person who posted the comment.  I hold no responsibility for them whatsoever.  I will exercise my right to moderate and edit comments which are deemed to be patently inaccurate, offensive, or off-subject.

The views and opinions expressed on this blog (outside of contributor comments) are purely my own. If I claim or appear to be an expert on a certain topic or product or service area, I will only endorse products or services that I believe, based on my expertise, are worthy of such endorsement—or knowledge that is based on industry-standard practices. Any product claim, statistic, quote, or other representation about a product, service, or technique should be verified with the manufacturer or provider.
