Housing Family Trees for FREE #general


There is a real trade-off in posting your tree on-line that goes well beyond whether LDS still engages in post-mortem baptisms:  Anything that goes on-line is hackable and whatever family relationships you post there are potentially in the public/hacker domain.  If your tree includes family secrets, or just identifies relationships that may enable another to gain access to other information about you or your relatives, you will have opened the door to all kinds of on-line mischief.  People should weigh those risks against the advantages of making your information available to others and having a place for your research to be preserved after your own departure.
