I think posting results for anyone who has given consent is fine. The only
problem that I see with the way you described it is in the pedigree. If the
participant has a living father (grandfather, etc.) who appears in the
pedigree, then you should have _his_ consent to place his name there as
well. A simple solution is to replace those names of living non-participants
with the generic "father of #7605", or whatever.
