I come to this problem from a different perspective. I did all the leg work. I slogged through many reels of LDS film, combed through courthouses, graveyards, i.e., I tried to find every possible bit of primary source material available. I found the European home of the family. Without my work, no one would be plastering this family all over the internet. I was very foolish to share any of my material (I did not post it on the Internet) and now it's come back to haunt me big time. How can people who are not even related in any way take my results and make them the authority on my family? How can people who may have common blood, but 5 or 6 generations back, put detailed information on my parents and grandparents in a public forum. In doing "whole" families, many of these people are in way over their heads, but quite proud of all the boring (and often erroneous) names and dates and places they enter, and having been successful in "getting back" further than their fellow "genies."
