- 478. Re: [ROOTS-L] Family Trees on line - An invasion of Privacy? 
- I am not sure of how many are aware of this. Perhaps it is not proper
genealogical etiquette to list a name of a living person,
Many local governments have public databases that include property records,
marriage and death records, criminal records ect that are all current.
Newspaper archives offer articles from now back to whenever.
Anyone researching a local government office can get most any record.
Face it we are in 2008. You want privacy become a hermit.

- Not true.
I can list at least one person who I know for a fact never received any sort
of benefits, died in a car accident at 23. He's in the SSDI. I'm sure he's
not the only one.

- 481. Re: [ROOTS-L] Online Tree Accuracy: was Family Tree -Invasion ofPrivacy 
I think the danger in OneWorldTree is that it's assembled by computer with
no weight given to databases with good sourcing and logical links versus
those with garbled connections; it's a simple vote by the majority--even
when the majority is wrong. Then people download the flawed results and
post them, creating another vote for the erring majority. Another problem
is that OneWorldTree hasn't been updated for several years. The issue is
probably moot, however, since I believe I saw a notice that

He has a rather high opinion of himself, what makes him think, any body would even care to find anything out about him? Very much self-centered, if he thinks we even give a fig leaf what he thinks.

My children's 97 year old great-grandmother recently went into a nursing home and her children had to find a copy of her birth certificate, she didn't have one at home so they had to send for one, but nobody could find it. She was born Nov. 25, 1910. They finally found it and it said she was born Nov. 30, 1910. Not only that but her maiden name was Campieri and the birth certificate said it was Cambi, and it gave a middle initial of S., and she doesn't have a middle name. We don't know what to think. If

- Re Laurie's comments:
I, personally have been referring to sharing family tree information
that has NOT been published. As for those trees that have been
published, referencing them as such should take care of the problem as
they've already posted them in the public domain. But, "technically"
taking any work in it's entirety and republishing without permission
has the "potential" to cause problems. If someone has already
published their tree, they probably wouldn't care if someone else

- 486. Re: [ROOTS-L] Changing given names, Surnames 
This is somewhat of a common problem I think. With several of us working on
the family tree (pre 'net) we came up with several different names for the
same person. Also my dad's family is just ornery enough to change a name
just for the heck of, especially in the 1800s.

- To Andy & Neal
Being a volunteer has its rewards, but I stopped because I couldn't take the constant inquiries as to WHY I hadn't finished a request, when I specifically stated when I would perform it. I had one complain to RAOGK about me because I didn't do it fast enough. I get lots of thanks, but some people expect the MOON!
I thank you for clearing this matter up and making your point very clear! I appreciate the time and effort all volunteers have given!
- 488. [ROOTS-L] another general misspelled surname at Ancestry 
- anyone researching Steuben/Steubing or Sterling who can access Ancestry,
I was alerted to this misspelling when I found a Sterling relative mispelled
as Stenbing in Pennsylvania to Waterloo (Ontario, Canada), and went in
search of them at Ancestry and attempting to figure out whether the surname
Stenbing actually exists-I don't think it does, I think it's a mistranscript
and only that.
there are a number of hits for it at Ancestry, so if you can't find your

- I also have contacted others, who listed family members of mine, but with some incorrect information. I have the actual records. When I asked where the information had come from, I was told he had no idea, just that he had over 25000 names, but never kept track of where they came from. Very sloppy genealogy in my estimation.

- 492. [ROOTS-L] ReSSDI 
- I think that some people are confusing "receiving benefits" as the deceased
person actually receiving benefits. If a person dies before collecting social
security the family often requests a death benefit for the deceased which I
think is somewhere around $250.00. Therefore, SS is notified of a death
Doesn't mean that the deceased collected benefits.

- Yes, Myra it is a good deal, IF one has $150 to $200 to spend at one time.
My money comes in monthly ... and I don't get enough to save anything, so
I try to spend monthly. Ancestry charges extra for a monthly subscription,
penalizing people who can't afford their yearly fees.
I don't have a cell phone, can't afford it, but I do have cable TV, which I
pay for monthly.

- I found myself and my sister in someone's family tree on ancestry.com.
I sent them an email asking how they were
related to me, since I couldn't really figure it out based on their
tree. They did not respond. I was not really that concerned about the
violation of privacy, since
my name would probably show up to most people as "living Francis" on
ancestry. But I think it's really rude to put someone in your tree and
then not respond to their emails.
