Pape Mortuary Database in Danville, IL - WARNING -

Posted: 17 Sep 2011 10:07AM GMT

Surnames: Smith, Sadler, Houser, Swigart
I was viewing the Pape Mortuary database and noticed they had my father listed and had the WRONG birthdate for him. I contacted them and informed him (Mr. Pape)that they had the wrong information and offered to correct it. He said and I quote "not without a birth or death certificate". So I have NO idea where these people get their information, certainly NOT with a birth or death cert. and genealogists should be aware that this data base is NOT accurate. After finding the error on my father, I continued to look at other lines of mine and there were quite a few errors in their 'data base'. Again, I'm not sure where they are getting their information, but please do not consider it gospel if it comes from that web site. Mr. Pape would not respond to my request for the information where they get their 'material' for their data base, nor would he correct my own father's birthdate.
