I’m printing a limited number of copies of my genealogy/family history “Whidden NH, NS and beyond 1662-2002 a family odyssey” in two volumes, 1,650+ pages and would like to include a copy of your genealogy research process/genealogy proof standard map in it with some of the text from your blog about it with a note by me to the effect “this book wasn’t created with this research tool but work will continue using them as best I can.” Since I note it is copyrighted, could I have permission to include the map/comments to hopefully get other Whiddon/Whidden/Whitten researchers to use this valuable tool. Will include a “used by permission” line as well.
I’ll forward a copy of the text used for your reference.
Current edition is Cerlox bound but hoping to get hardcover edition published.

I also wondered, which theme have you got on this site? It’s amazing and I’d love to know the name of it.”]]>
I reviewed the files on the site and they don’t contain the 2 errors you mentioned. The correct words are AN and PRESENT. Not sure what happened. Try to download the file again and let me know what happens.
This is a masterpiece! The Genealogical Proof Standard though an absolute necessity, does in fact frighten some researchers, particularly the newcomers to this endeavor of researching one’s ancestors.
Your beautiful chart will be a much easier way to understand, and hopefully encourage compliance, that will be very valuable to all. The visual chart is very easy to understand, and one should not be hesitant one bit to take advantage of it.
I would like your permission to Blog about it and link to your download.
Thank you so much.

Now I have a new problem for you.
I am working with a colleague to show the chain migration of a small population of men who became miners in MI in 1870s-1900. I am trying to develop a visual to show the intermarriage of the families in the Prussian village and the next generation in Calumet.
I also need to design a map that shows where the families migrated in the US after their stint in Calumet. I currently have Campaign Cartographer software, Excel, Adobe Photoshop.
I have looked at a few visual concepts:
