Re: Sharing family tree information #general

Greetings all,
While choosing a less accessible security question is certainly an option, there's no requirement that you provide the "correct" answer to any question.  For example, I could choose the "mother's maiden name" question, but assign the answer Orangey or Fido. 

Just saying....

I give them a link to my online tree on my website.  It does not allow download of gedcoms, shows only names and no data for living people.  And some living people are privatized, upon request.  There are some photos there (none - of living people).  I strongly recommend to ALL companies that mother's maiden name is a TERRIBLE security question - and require a second one - often the name of a first pet.  When given choices for security questions - I avoid all questions about relatives - such as your father's middle name, if at all possible.  Cars, proms, streets lived on, pets, schools attended etc - all much better questions.
