Day 192 – (AD 1,354) – 20.0 Miles Today – Jim’s Trek Part V – On My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

Today I cycled my Schwinn 170 another 20.1 miles. Today was a struggle and I truly thought that I would not reach my 20 miles plus within my hour time frame. I did. My totals now stand at 28,754.1 mile; 46,275.3 kilometers. I have also completed 75.27% of my intended goal. (The only thing is that that percentage number just doesn't seem to move as fast as I would like it to.

And today I reached my goal of Lambert Crater on Mars. I actually went a bit further but as I do not have my desktop as yet I cannot provide a new destination and goal point. If my calculations are correct, based on the last leg of my journey I have pedaled 17.2 miles beyond.

Am spending a good part of my time re-creating the Brunhammer Doherty Family Tree using the Ancestry.com Family Tree program. I have been a strong proponent in the past of not putting genealogical information on any subscription service. I always felt since I began working with genealogy around 2003 that I should be the one control of that information. Let me tell you something, Ancestry.com has come a long way since then.

I am following two specific guidelines and holding fast to them. One is that I will not put any information on the Ancestry.com Family Tree database that is a specific reference to any persons currently living. That is key and an important rule to follow. My second rule is that I will NOT "link" to any online information in any other family tree unless it is properly sourced and cited. This means that if there ain't proof it isn't going in any of my family trees.

I can also add a third and a fourth rule. The third is that I have checked the ability of the ged.com facility in order to download the information that I include on the Ancestry.com tree. The purpose for this is to make sure that I can collect my information and data should I decide to close my Ancestry.com subscription membership. (I have been a constant Ancestry member since the year 2001.

The fourth rule is that I make sure that I read the fine print and make sure that I have chosen the option that does not relinquish control of my historical data to Ancestry.

The family tree is the Brunhammer Doherty Family Tree. If you would like access to the tree you will need an invitation from me. You can sign up with Ancestry, and from what I understand, WITHOUT having to take a membership subscription. Feel free to contact me at jsmith58@gmmail.com.
