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. In order to support research by other genealogists, this data is often published on internet genealogy websites.
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 a 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.
We designed this website so it suppresses the names of living
individuals. If you are aware that someone is living and their name is shown here, please let us know, so we
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.”
Before any photograph can be included in this website, permission is obtained from the
owner of a photograph. Permission is also obtained from living
individuals in a photograph if,
The statement "Used with Permission" after the owner's name identifies compliance with these requirements.

To insure the privacy of living individuals, this website always suppress 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: If a relative does not want his/her personal data to reside in a
website server database in spite of password protection, that individual and linked
descendants cannot be accommodated by the security program. They are reluctantly excluded
from the website.
