Talking Scot & mentioning living or recent persons

Postby LesleyB » Fri Oct 13, 2006 12:00 am

The general convention when posting family trees on the WWW is to avoid posting information that relates to living persons.

From time to time questions are posted on Talking Scot which deal with persons who were born, married or died not so long ago. We regret that we cannot help with queries about any persons who might still be living. There are several good reasons for this, not least our desire to respect the privacy of living persons.

Please use the cut-off dates used by Scotlands People as a guideline:

» Births up 1913
» Marriages up to 1938
» Deaths up to 1963
- regardless of country.

We are aware that indices for more recent events are available on line: anyone can pay to look up these indices, but we would prefer that details of any person who might still be living or who has died within the last fifty years are not posted publicly on the forum.


Many thanks for your co-operation in this matter.
