My father, Jeff Gray was always happy to share information with other researchers and that’s the whole point of the website. The information is here for you to use, but, as you use it, we’d really appreciate it if you’d keep a few things in mind.

Much of the information here and the photographs, documents and other media came from someone else. For the most part, these contributors gave us permission to use their images and information with the  understanding that we would give them credit for their contribution. We have tried very hard to always give credit where credit is due, and tell our visitors exactly where we got each piece of information. Furthermore, we, too, are hoping all that hard work will be acknowledged and appreciated as it makes its way around the Internet.

If you plan to use information from this site for your genealogy and you end up publishing it, either in a traditional publication like a book or even just a public tree on, please copy the sources along with it! Don’t just put it up on your tree without any reference to the people who did all the work to find it, contribute it and make it available to you. In the case of images, like photos and documents, it would be a good idea if you contacted us to ask permission first. In some cases, we will need to contact the original contributor to make sure it is OK with them as well.

Along with the other sources associated with the information or images, we’d also appreciate it if you would include the following reference either in your notes or as an additional source citation associated with each image or person-page:

That way, if someone sees the information in your tree in the future and wants to know where it came from, they can contact us directly too here. Also, we’re still busy adding to our collection, and we may need to make corrections or add new information about our ancestors. If you reference us, then hopefully future researchers will be able to find that new information.
