Everyone in involved in genealogy is disgusted with the rising costs of doing
this hobby. And in some areas, costs continue to climb. Even when
you have an exact date of birth/death, or know the exact Book/Volume and page
number you want, locations will often charge between $10.00 to $20.00 for ONE
Xeroxed Page (which is outrageous!). Other places charge $1.00 per
Xerox Copy made on their machine, trying to re-coup at least 95% of every dollar
they spend on maintenance and related costs (but, we all know Xeroxes have come
down to 0.02 cents to 0.05 cents on most public Xerox machines, and even small
libraries only charge 0.25 cents per page).
The high costs of postage, Xeroxes, travel and gas expenses, book costs,
membership costs to societies etc., all make web sites like this one and my
primary Washington Co PA website very important. The more transcripts of
original documents that we can access online, the better for everyone,.
especially for people who live out of State. But, in most cases, *someone*
initially absorbed the costs to get the information in the first place. My
sister, grandmother and I spent tons of money to get the research materials I am
now sharing here. If you were to get the same records now yourself, they
could cost 10 times more for you at today's prices than when I was doing
Therefore, if you would like to make a donation of appreciation for the items
you have found here, I would be very thankful. You may send by regular
mail to the address below, or email me if you would like to use the check-paying
system through PayPal (minimum donation at Paypal would need to cover the Paypal
fees, please). Again, thank you very much for helping me to help you.
