Status of Web Site
There are 92 Family Trees on the web site and over 22,300 individuals appear on these trees.
If you are a paid up Society member and you cannot see yourself or close relations in your family tree let me know where you fit in and I will configure your log in to enable you to see details of yourself and close relatives. Without this set up you may find the family trees difficult to use.
As you all know membership subscriptions are due at the beginning of the year. As of the 1st February, memberships not current have been deactivated from areas only available to members. Upon receipt of membership subscription for this year, full member access will normally be restored within 2 working days.
Would someone kindly explain to me the privacy rules operating on the Bunting family tree charts on the web site? I have just looked at my family tree (Matlock 3) and in particular the details of my parents. I find my brother's details on the chart but mine are not shown and are marked as private. I do not recall being asked whether I wanted it this way and I cannot understand the Society's reluctance to show this information. Can it really be that it is because I am still alive? And if that is the case what is the point as this information is available from many other sources. And please don't come back with the old chestnut of data protection. Surely in a society which is all about family history there must be a way of showing fully all available information even it means asking the members to opt in or out.
Secondly, am I alone in finding these charts almost impossible to navigate easily?
The Society is saddened to hear of the death of George H Bunting, the President of the Bunting Society . He contributed much to the Society over the years, these articles from our Journal are only a small part of what he has contributed..
At the February meeting of the Committee of the Bunting Society it was unanimously agreed that due to life members living longer, the current economic climate, and the resultant low returns on our invested monies that the following changes to subscription rates be proposed at the AGM on 8 October 2011 and if passed take immediate effect.
