JFJP - warning about privatizing individuals #general


 

When you upload a GEDCOM, JFJP does not follow best practices to privatize living individuals. It does hide dates and places but not names (this is documented but unexpected). This is not consistent with any other public tree program that I know of (Ancestry, FTDNA, etc.). I was contacted yesterday about a living individual in my tree that appeared on JFJP and was surprised by that.

So, going forward when I export from FTM which I use for all my trees, I will make sure to take the extra step of checking the box to "Privatize living people". Just something to keep in mind.

Thanks - mystery solved! I always think of it as FTJP.

You are probably right.

My advantage is that I was able to take a guess not remembering the official abbreviation.
