Posts concerning recent births, deaths and marriages

Post by TSAG » Mon Oct 06, 2008 11:58 pm

It has been noted that quite a number of posts have been made recently which give full names, along with dates of birth, marriage or death well past our stated guidelines which can be found in the Essential Reading section.

We regret that we cannot help with queries about any persons who might still be living or who have died relatively recently. There are several good reasons for this, not least our desire to respect the privacy of living persons, the relatives of those living and deceased, and those who have been recently bereaved.

These guidelines, along with the others in the Essential Reading section are in place for a reason, and any post which mentions those living or deceased whose dates are later than any of the cut-off dates (as used by Scotlands People):
» Births up 1907
» Marriages up to 1932
» Deaths up to 1957
- regardless of country, will be subject to removal from the public board. As the great majority of the Admin group and the Moderators of TS are at work during the day and given that we are all volunteers who give freely of our time to answer questions and help with the smooth running of TS, we are not always in a position to send detailed reminders of the TS guidelines to individual members.

We would very much appreciate if all members could please ensure that they abide by the above cut-off dates given as guidelines when posting queries. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in this matter.
