So, I live to tell of it—my harrowing tale of posting a bit of my family on the internet, out there for all to see.
Rootsweb, the generous repository of the freely-accessible genealogy data of a multitude of users worldwide, reserved the right to take up to 36 hours to make my database publicly available. Something about regularly-scheduled times to batch their computer records, I’m sure.
In reality, it didn’t take that long. Though I could hardly stand the wait, my records were online the afternoon following the evening of my virtual escapade—not even a 24 hour wait.
In the meantime, true confession: I went back to the site several times to check and see if my file was posted. I was probably as bad as a kid on a trip to the beach: “Are we there yet? Are we there yet?”
Yes, we are there. And you are welcome to see for yourself.
