On Tracing the Tribe - Jewish Genealogy on Facebook - -
which now has almost 3,300 very active global talented members who
delight in quickly translating gravestones and documents (almost
instantaneously!), helping to overcome brick walls and doing some
really wonderful things, the pinned "guidelines" are very clear.

Ethical and copyright considerations are important. Just because it
is on the Internet does not mean it is free for the taking.

"*New* Simple rules: No politics, no commercial sales, no proselytizing.
This is a *Jewish* genealogy group and all postings must have some
connection to Jewish genealogy. Thanks to all who abide by the rules.
Inappropriate posts - and the poster - will be removed immediately.
Posts in English, please! *Addition*: All information and documents
provided in these posts by members may *not* be used for any purpose
whatsoever without the express written consent of the poster."

These are the new rules. I did not have that last sentence in there
until it became necessary.

with best wishes
