Yesterday,11 Dec 2017, I created a 173-page, twelve generation, ancestor report for Michael Leek. It includes the obituary for his father, Melvin Gale Leek,who died on 2 Dec 2017.
Surnames include: Yoho, Starkey, Shreve, Postlethwait, Leek, Ice, Higginbotham, Henthorn, Edgell, Byard, Blake, Barker, Baker.

I shared the report on my Members Only group on Facebook. I am willing to share with others who agree to reciprocate.

Lazarus Rine, Sr.

Lazarus Rine, Sr.

FYI, my Lazarus Rine, Sr. genealogy, with every name and place name indices, is now 1148-pages. That's a little over two reams of paper if printed on one side only.
It isn't available on the Internet. That is to say, I don't even keep a copy of the report on my own computer. It's just information stored in one of my genealogy files until I tell RootsMagic to create the report.
I just felt like doing some Tuesday morning bragging.

RootsMagic Place Name Edit Tip

RootsMagic Place Name Edit Tip

In the Place List if you highlight a place and click on Print it should default to printing a list with everyone using it [the place name in question]. You can save it [the report] as a PDF if you can't [don't want to] print [the report]. If no one [in your file] is using it [the place name] then click on "Unused Places" in the Place List and you can delete them [the problem place name].
(Furnished by Renee Zamora of the RootsMagic staff, via the Facebook RootsMagic Users page on 1 Dec 2017)

Not mentioned by Renee Zamora is that you can also use the report information to determine which RINs are involved with the place name and then use that information to find and view the records for possible edits. Information in the square brackets [ ] added by yours truly to improve readability.

Richard E. Henthorn Genealogy Donations:

Genealogy documents donated to the New Martinsville Public Library in New Martinsville, Wetzel Co., WV by the compiler, Richard E. Henthorn of Hyattsville, MD.

I'm pleased that I was able to figure out how to share this link with readers of my blog.

If you view any of these documents I'd appreciate feedback about which one you found and on its physical condition.  As of this date, I don't think anyone has ever contacted me to let me know they found and viewed any of these donations.
