Re the Message >from Boaz Lasky re Good family
tree site.

After I read Baruch Krotman's website referred to by Boaz Lasky, at least a
year ago, I
noticed not only the whole of my family tree but also
the family trees of many South Africans to whom I
am definately not related. I spoke to a few of the
people listed who are also living in Israel, as I am,
and we decided to contact Baruch Krotman,
as none of the families whom I spoke to, including my family are related to
him.
I don't know >from where he is getting his information
as he will not tell one. But if you see your name on his tree and believe
that you are not related, you must contact him immediately. He may reply
and say that if your name is on his tree then we must be related. Then if
you ask him >from where he got your details, he will
not be able to tell you.

I would regard this as a general warning to all people
who put Family Trees on the website thinking that it
is a wonderful idea. It is not - and one must be very
careful when advertising their family tree on the World
Wide Web! If you want to have your family tree lodged
there is Jewishgen and Beit Hatefutsoth who will
keep them confidential.
