Reader Comment on "Grandma's 1930 Census: Primary, Secondary, Original, and Derivative"

This is part of an email I received from a reader a few days ago--it's always great to hear from readers, even if they aren't happy about something. Positive comments are especially nice when I'm behind schedule and need motivation. This is part of an email from DM, a subscriber from the Southwest United States.

I am a subscriber to your Casefile Clues and am always delighted when they appear in my digital mail box. I have taught family history at [name omitted] for the past six years, beginning, intermediate, and independent studies.

When I read “Grandma’s 1930 Census Entry: Primary, Secondary, Original, and Derivative,” I really wished that my intermediate students could read your article. It would be good for them to be exposed to another genealogist’s viewpoint instead of always hearing mine. May I have your permission to distribute a copy the Vol. 2, No. 21 issue of your newsletter to my intermediate class as a handout? Some of them are budding genealogists and it would be good to expose them to your newsletter.

Thanks for the comments--I really appreciate it. Anyone who would like to request permission to use older articles for classroom instruction can contact me at
