Can I add a picture of my wedding to Family Search. Can every body see it?
For living people, I do not upload copies of documents or photos I don't want the whole world to see. I am also guilty of not citing sources for living people on Ancestry and Family Search.
"Information, including photos, entered about living people is not publicly available in order to protect their privacy. If a story [photo or document]* has information about both living and deceased people and the deceased person is tagged, the story and photos can be publicly seen attached to the deceased person." - Family Search *Note: Square brackets in genealogy research indicates the genealogist is adding some information that is not in the original document.
Ancestry doesn't post their policy as clearly. In the forums people claim that if the photo is attached to a living person, then it is private and not visible even if it is also attached to a deceased person. However, when I go to upload a photo of myself, I get the same message that appears when I upload information for deceased individuals "The files you upload are visible to everyone."
So again, with all the data breaches out there, I don't post any photos or documents I don't want the whole world to see. As a side note, when you do post photos and documents, other researchers can copy them or attach them to their trees.
