The beginnings of the discussion list ROOTS demonstrated that sometimes genealogically related information visually is presented much better than in words. Some original publications or documents that the holder not fully understand, or desire to discuss in some details or simply wish to show to fellow researchers for deeper knowledge of the life of times past etc. can be made available as scanned photographs or texts..
This page is meant for the publication of this kind of information, if it was find not corresponding to the other pages of the Site. After some time it will be deleted from the Exposition.
Some researchers propose also the materials that fully correspond to the principles and to the concept of ROOTS=SAKNES and can be built into the Site quite logically. This information needs more work to prepare it for publication and will be published in its turn.
