Why do I see the word Living in the place of where individuals names would be shown?

Only certain information is shown for living individuals. Depending on your user permissions (if you have a user account) you will either see Living, the individuals surname and initials or their full name. Those with no user account or not logged in will only see the word Living in place of the individuals name. The majority of users will not be permitted to view information for living individuals - this is to help prevent personal identity fraud.

Unable to read the challenge graphic on the 'Contact Us' or 'Suggest a Change' pages?

The challenge graphic has been added to reduce automated spam reaching my mailbox. Generally there should be no problems for people to be able to read the graphic. Please ensure you enter all the characters in lower case - failing to do this will result in failing the challenge.

But if you do continue to have problems, please email me on 'genealogy_at_2hunt4_dot_info' replacing '_at_' with '@' and replace '_dot_' with '.', with a note of the problem and I'll contact you directly.
