Privacy Policy
Privacy and identy theft are real concerns in the world of the Internet. Many organizations dealing with the capture and storage of personal data take steps to guard against identity fraud. We also believe that living individuals have a right to privacy and apply the following policies.

  • Every attempt has been made to protect the names and the details of the living who will appear only as "Living" on this website.
  • People born within the last 100 years and without a known date of death will be presumed to be living.
  • Users of this website wanting to access the personal data of living persons will be required to register themselves. See the registration section that follows.
  • A living person may appear in photographs of groups of people, and as a gerneral rule, we do not disclose their complete names.
  • Upon notification that specific material on our website infringes on the privacy rights of an individual or group, we will review the questionable material to determine if the request for removal is reasonable and act accordingly. The exception would be for material commonly available in the public domain.
