Re: Geni Family Trees - Privacy and Baptism Concerns #general

My concerns about GENI have naught to do with either privacy or religious rituals- I simply don't care.  However, I am deeply disturbed by free-wheeling, often undocumented additions to trees which are posted without restriction.  But GENI is useful in two ways: (1) to get  hints (sometimes weird posts are accurate) (2) to get names of the people who posted- sometimes they are amenable to discussion vis a vis their sources.  But about the LDS- they have done wonderful work in obtaining and filming records as well as in preparing finding aids. We owe them, bigtime   If they want to pray over us, well- be my guest !
