ALL GEDCOM DATABASE INFORMATION contained within this project, is considered to be Public Domain Information by our Federal Government.  U.S. Copyright Law does not protect this type of data, only the presentation of it.  This is an important point for genealogists, because it means that data such as Names, Dates & Places can not be copyright protected.  Therefore, you can not legally block any of this data from public viewing.


GEDCOM is the GEnealogical Data COMmunication standard that was established by the Family History Department of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  It's recommended that you reference the Wikipedia Encyclopedia webpage at for a detailed explanation of what a database of this type actually represents. 


A GEDCOM Database CAN NOT NORMALLY BE POLICED.  You should expect its content to be incomplete, contain inaccuracies & typo errors.  Attempting to make permanent record changes to a GEDCOM Database, isn't worth the effort - incorrect records, will simply continue to be merged into this database.  The trick is to try and determine "who" is making the incorrect submittals and have them change their records.  This GenWeb Project webpage is simply a snapshot of an archived 2004 database. 


Herman Geschwin is now deceased and his database file dated 01-Dec-2006 (381,000 individuals), appears to be his last issue.  You can download Herman's 01-Dec-2006 database issue by visiting  The database manager is aware that this issue is incomplete, contains inaccuracies & typo errors.  Work is underway to police this issue and to make needed corrections.  If you have any issues, please send them to Judy Long at   


It should be noted that the following webpage information is a Pickens County SC GenWeb Project and maintained by such. 

This webpage info simply represents a snapshot of Herman Geschwind's database dated 31-Dec-2004. 

The snapshot is not part of the current GEDCOM Database Project.            

Since this is a donated historical record, changes will not normally be make to it.
