Actually I had seen Jack Nida's home page on Family Tree Maker but I had not yet even had the time to go through all of the info as he doesn't have any trees online for merging & to incorperate the info I would have to retype it rather than merging & checking (up until 2 weeks ago when I went on maternity leave I was working 2 ful time jobs, leaving little time for family tree work). I did find the name of my ancestor Johann Nida, which I then searched for on other sites as well as Family Tree Maker. Also I got that name originally from my aunt who got much info from a family bible. The info found in my family files came from three different files found through Ancestry.com and from my aunt and mother. I gathered from your e-mail that you had stated that I had copied the info directly fropm your site or book. I took the time to print out what you have from your site after you accused me of this. I can say that I found many places where you had dates & etc that I did not & some where I had different dates. If I had taken the time to copy your info I can assure you that I would have done a much more thourough job! I am not contesting the fact that we may have much of the same info, I am not even saying that it couldn't have come from your book. WHAT I AM SAYING IS THAT I DID NOT COPY YOUR INFORMATION AND YOU OUGHT TO AT LEAST WAIT FOR A REPLY BEFORE YOU PUBLICALLY ACCUSE SOMEONE!!! I would not have minded crediting your book and even purchasing a copy as I have never seen it but if you are going on a "witch hunt" I believe I have gotten to know you well enough without futher contact!
