Copyright Concerns: Not to be Ignored!
We do hesitate to put detailed personal information including home addresses on the web. Remember, anyone can and is reading this, for a wide variety of purposes, mostly entirely honourable and innocent. But, all it takes is one person, perhaps hoping to enter Canada illegally, to create a lot of pain and trouble for that individual. Please, let us avoid exposing any of our clansfolk to that. The Public Archives will not release vital statistics until they are 100 years old. Let us use that as a cautionary guide, though it may not be necessary to follow it strictly to the 100 years in each circumstance. Tread wisely, with caution.
Having paid proper attention to copyright and security issues, let's step forward boldly, develop our individual clan homepages, and have good fun doing it.
One last word. We do, as do magazines and etc., reserve the right to edit any text submitted, or refuse any material which is deemed inappropriate for a website dedicated to New Scotland (Nova Scotia).
