Sure wish I had something to disclose.

The Federal Trade Commission has said, in a lot of words, what amounts to "tell your readers who pays you or provides freebies for advertising, promoting or otherwise waxing eloquently about their goods, and/or services and what that payment is."  If I don't, the FTC may fine me $11,000 big ones for each offending post or take other equally distasteful actions.  Any of those would be bad news for a grandma.

No one has, so far, offered to pay TRAEA's Grandma for anything.  But you can be the first.  A legit connection to the fun of genealogy?  Your people and mine should talk.  And then I'll have something to disclose (yea!).
