Availability of family trees

Dear George,

Prue has replied with the confirmation of the current situation that you and Mark have raised and followed it by saying the Committee will discus the matter on November 28th.

We have a problem in that all of the trees have personal data of people who are very much alive. Those Members don't wish to have their facts stolen and misused. The newspapers regularly carry stories of "stolen Identities". I think the Society could be liable under the "Data Protection Act" too if we published the trees. Even so I believe it is possible to arrive at a sensible solution for a wider provision of family history data.

Is there an interim solution? Several I think. Mark came to the Tissington, (DBY) AGM/Open and Research day when we had many trees but not all, on open display. We had selected those of the County in which Member attendees had ancestors. The rest were in a box in the hall. I don't know where you live but could you have come too? Attendees were asked to amend the trees or to show additions where they were needed to so that the data file could updated. Recordkeeper, Mary Rix, is only too willing to send you a gedcom copy, or printout of your tree and to discuss any need you may have for any other County or named tree. Have you been in touch with her?

It's one minute to midnight so I think that is enough for now except to ask you to help the Committee further by giving them fully your view.

Michael.

In loading family trees onto the website we can easily filter out living individuals completely or just filter out data against them. This is standard practise on any genealogical web site.
