Of course the Family Then and Now website is for the specific purpose of providing our visitors with personal information about our ancestral family lines. However, we restrict those whom we particularly identify and provide information about on a webpage devoted to them individually to (1) those individuals who have already died, (2) those living individuals who have granted us their permission to publicly post their (possibly limited) information, and (3) those living individuals who are about 60 years of age or older. Other individuals may be incidentally mentioned as a part of that presentation. Additionally, controlled access is allowed to certain editors and other site visitors who have reqested and been granted specific permission to view the otherwise hidden data known about other living individuals or family lines.
If anyone desires to have coverage or mention of themselves on the Family Then and Now removed or masked from public view, please contact the editor. Likewise, if responsible individuals would like to provide new, corrected, or additional family tree information, stories, or photographs, which involves or links to existing individuals included on this website, please contact the editor.

There are cases where we may ask you for personal information such as your name, e-mail address, or comments, etc. Even so, we will not rent, sell, or exchange any such information with a third party for any purpose. In most cases this information is immediately used to send the requested communications and is then deleted from our server.
