Privacy Policy


The primary objective in genealogy is to identify all ancestors and descendants in a particular family tree and to collect personal data on them. As a minimum, this data includes the individual's name and the date/location of birth, marriage, and death. The privacy of this information is important to me and I assure you there is a privacy policy in place for this Website.

Most of us would prefer not to have to worry about our personal data but, in this day and age, we must use caution to prevent misuse of the information. Identity theft and credit fraud are the worst problems. There is concern that information distributed to distant relatives or put on genealogy websites makes it easier for unscrupulous individuals to commit invasions of privacy or other frauds. However, the personal information that the identity thieves and credit fraud perpetrators want are full names, social security numbers, dates and places of birth, current occupation/employment data, and bank/credit card account numbers. One or two facts alone (e.g., your name and/or your mother's maiden name) are not enough information to cause damage.

To insure the privacy of living individuals, this Website always suppresses the personal data of living individuals from viewing by the general public. Personal data includes, but is not limited to, birth/marriage dates/locations, photographs, notes, and biographies. Note: Family members may be able to view personal information for living persons closely related to them, but not for all living individuals (see below under "Personal Data Access"). Do not be alarmed if you see all the data about yourself. That is by design and does not mean others who are not close family members can see that information.

I have configured this Website to display only the initials and last name of living individuals with no other details about birth, etc. Except as noted above, full names and details are displayed only if there is a date of death or if an individual was born more than 110 years ago. If you are aware that someone you should not have access to is living and their information is shown here, please let me know, so I can remedy the situation.

Photographs of living individuals are considered personal data and are normally suppressed. However, if the individual so chooses, a photograph can be tagged as "always visible."

Note: If a relative does not want their personal data to reside in a website server database in spite of password protection, that individual and linked descendants will be excluded from this Website.

Pesonal Data Access    

Personal data access is restricted to family members who must login to access the normally suppressed personal data of living individuals. Access in most cases will be limited to a person's own family branch. To view the primary tree you must first read the Website Privacy Policy, agree with the Website Terms of Use, and register for a user account. When registering for your user account, you must indicate how you are related to our family to access data on any living individuals. If you are not related, you will not be granted access to personal data of living individuals.

With registration, you will be granted access to all non-living individuals and to living individuals in your unique family branch within the database. You will also be given the opportunity to suggest updates to the information on this site. If you have media you would like to contribute I request that you send the files to me via email (when sending photos, the minimum size should be 400 x 400 pixels to display well, although smaller will be accepted if that is all you have).

Non-family members with a registered account will have access only to non-living persons. Persons without a login id are restricted to a consolidated "demo" database containing only birth/marriage/death information on non-living ancestors. They will not have access to photos, documents, histories, etc.

Personal Data Security    

Original data given to me in trust via account registration or other action (personal information, e-mail/street addresses, phone numbers, etc.) is not provided to others unless your approval is first obtained. You should be aware, however, that most of this information is in the public domain and may already be readily available to others using internet search engines (e.g., Yahoo People Search, Google.com, Birthday.com).

Cookies are used on this site in order to pass data such as your login to other pages within the site. They are essential for the operation of the site while you are using it. Cookies should expire once you logout of this site. However, if you use the Bookmark function, a cookie will be needed to retain that bookmark.
