Re: Sharing family tree information #general
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Anyone who can show a valid link to myself, I am willing
to send a family tree descendant list with dates of birth and death,
The only "secret" information is mother's maiden name. The other
information can be easily found onlline.
I do NOT supply GED files. I DO add a note to the descendant list that
the information supplied is copyrighted and cannot be uploaded, and
all information is questionable and needs to be verified if used.
When you start to read readin,
how do you know the fellow that
wrote the readin,
wrote the readin right?

I would like some advice on how much information to share with someone, unknown to me but distantly connected. After discovering shared relatives via another site, I contacted this person. He has asked for birth, death, marriage, children information about my branch of the family. I am certain the connection is valid, but I am uncertain the protocol for sharing information, particularly for living relatives. While I well understand the desire to fill in as many blanks as possible, I'm not completely comfortable with sharing these details for living persons. I am certain the connection is a valid one, and I want to be helpful, but... How have you handled this situation?
