When I began my research 20+ years ago, I was the only one in my family that had any interest in researching our ancestors.
Over the years I have been contacted by numerous distant cousins and I myself have contacted distant cousins on varies lines, and without fail, I always have the most information.
Because I am very diligent in checking sources and I want copies of EVERYTHING I find, I am always happy to share what information and documents I have gathered.
I feel genealogy research should be a collaborative effort, why would I not share?? I have run across some researches who don't share their information and I think that is just plain silly. It makes no sense to me. If you have information someone else needs, why withhold that information?
