The Internet as a Preserving Resource

Almost since the beginning, when Adam and Eve had to leave the Garden of Eden, their descendants have been on the move.  Ancient history is but a study of sorted populations, many f which were simply lost to the future.  We can and should remember recent histories, the details of which assist the genealogist in locating families. After the Revolutionary War ended, land grants were offered to veterans and it became popular to move into GA, SC and NC to take up new lands.  But Georgia offered more!  It began its process of removing native tribes of Indians into western territories, especially into Kansas and Oklahoma. Thus, the land was distributed to the lucky drawers of the lands lotteries beginning in 1820 and ending in 1832.  Still, despite the records maintained for centuries, so much is lost!  Today, we have the internet as a preserving source, but only if it survives and is untainted by government regulation, tax and interference.  Let us hope!
