As the database expands, it's becoming increasingly difficult to add all the children and grandchildren of people. It takes hours to track each person and ensure they are deceased before "showing them". Records added in 2012 with a 100-year cut off were from a Gedcom started in 2002. Almost 20 years later, many people are deceased or over 100 years old, but are still hidden as living.
During updating I "unhide" people, but if you do find someone who you know is deceased, please let me know.
Meanwhile, you can often get clues to potentially living relatives by following the link to a gravestone. The image there may well confirm suspicions or set you up to find more relatives.
Every month I receive several enquiries from people about individuals or families in the database. Most are very polite and happy to share/exchange information. A few, less so. I am just one person, who works full time at a very challenging job. My aim is to help people FOR FREE. It is so nice to get friendly emails from people all over the world, asking for help or making corrections in a non-judgemental way.
You can help me, in return, by always giving the name of the person as it appears in the database (even if you think it's wrong) and their INDIVIDUAL ID number (this starts with an I not a 1). Sometimes it takes me a little while to respond, often this is because I am researching to try to find information you asked for!
I am now trying to collect as many photos as I can. If you have a photo of a person (or family group) that YOU OWN (please don't break other people's copyright, it's not fair) and would like to share, please email it as a jpg/tiff etc file AS AN ATTACHMENT with a subject line "photo of [insert name]" and I will upload it and link it to your family member.
Please keep corrections and other additions/amendments coming. This database is only as good as the information received :-)
