There are only a few simple rules for this site:
- No profanity, obscenity, abuse, harassment, etc. This site is family friendly. Exceptions are permitted only for stories, documents, and photographs that have direct relevance to the family history. These may still be removed at my discretion.
- You must register before you can comment or submit photos. You must be at least 13 to register. See the Privacy section for more information. Registrations must be approved by a human being. This could take anywhere from a few minutes to a few days. Please be patient. Repeated registrations will not speed up the process.
- Do not post any copyrighted materials if you do not have written permission allowing you to use and distribute them. The sole exception is fair use, a fairly complex legal doctrine despite the simple-sounding name. The use of some materials in scholarly pursuits (genealogy often counts as one) can be permitted, but if in doubt please ask before posting. If you are the copyright owner, post away, but please consider giving me permission to use the content in other areas of the site.
You should consider this site as the online equivalent to my living room; you are a guest in my virtual home. I reserve to right to remove any content or users from the site at any time, for any reason, with or without warning.
