PLEASE privatise submissions of living people to Family Tree
I wish to formally request aa software enhancement to prevent living people being entered as 'deceased' without documentation.
This may occur when a submitter makes an individual entry, or perhaps uploads a file in ged.com. I have now successfully updated myself and another 44 people in my New Zealand family tree, though as others have married surnames I can't complete the task. Our privacy laws are infringed when such information on living people goes online.
As I work extensively with both Family Tree Maker and Ancestry.com, I believe your software should also privatise living people by:
- warning any submitter making an individual entry
- automatically privatising anyone born less than 110 years ago if bulk uploads are made
Thank you for considering my suggestion.
