Information Concerning Living Persons

    All effort will be taken to avoid posting information concerning living persons. Such information will be posted as an exception rather than as the norm.

    The following guidance applies to Vital Records:
    • Records of births during the last 70 years will not be posted.
    • Records of marriages during the last 50 years will not be posted.
    • Records of deaths for any year may be posted.
    • Records of divorces during the last 70 years will not be posted.
    • Obituaries naming surviving family members may be posted if personal information concerning those family members is excluded. An example of personal information would be the street address of a surviving family member.

    The Social Security Account Number, or any other number assigned to a living person, will never be posted.

    The military record of any living person will not be posted without their approval.

    Cemetery or tombstone records which name a living spouse or family member need not be altered before posting.

    Contributions containing information about living persons may be posted with their consent.

    A record which has been posted containing information about a living person will be removed immediately upon the request of the person named in the record.
