Privacy restrictions for 'Event' 5 years 4 months ago #1

Hi all

As I'm new to presenting my family trees online, I'm still weighing up to what extent I will be applying privacy restrictions.

My issue right now is that I would like to apply privacy restrictions to some of the 'Event' entries FTM 2014 created for a small number of custom fields I required. However, I don't know where I would apply this. I can't see 'Event' as an option in the 'Privacy restrictions' part under 'Managing family trees'.

One example is a 'Deportation' field, currently visible here for instance.

The raw GEDCOM for this example is:

1 EVEN Deported to Minsk
2 TYPE Deportation
2 DATE 20 JUL 1942
2 PLAC Cologne, Köln, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany
2 SOUR @S133@
3 DATA
4 TEXT Bader, Friedrich
5 CONT
5 CONT
5 CONT Deportation:
5 CONT from Köln
5 CONT 20th July 1942, Minsk
5 CONT Maly Trostinec, killing field
3 _LINK www.bundesarchiv.de/gedenkbuch/

Is there a way to apply privacy restrictions to specific types of 'Event'?

Many thanks and Happy New Year (in advance)

Ruth

Hi Ruth,

In the "Edit" interface of the event, go down and you will see "Add a new restriction", click on it and select in the drop-down list the appropriate privacy.

Hi Jackie

Thanks for responding so quickly! I didn't really expect a reply until 2016. :-)

I was hoping that there might be a way to apply a privacy restriction across all events of the same type, rather than having to apply the restriction in each instance. I looked at batch update but couldn't figure out how to do it.

I have hundreds of such events (in this case always with the same type 'Deportation').

Hi Ruth,

I am afraid it is not possible in your case. It is possible to apply privacy to a GEDCOM tag(birth, death, etc.) but yours is not GEDCOM standard. Therefore, it is not in the list.

Oh, I see. Thanks for explaining, Jackie.

Sounds like I'll either have to adjust each item individually or just not worry about applying the privacy restrictions.

Cheers
Ruth

Sorry for butting in here, but it always bothers me when people start randomly hiding data like this.

Think first - that information comes from a publicly accessible database (your record even provides a link to the site). If your source doesn't see fit to hide it from public access, why would you want to?

Privacy is a very important aspect of genealogy, but often used excessively, and unnecessarily. Surely one reason for having a tree online is to extend our shared knowledge of world history, not obscure it?

I totally accept that ultimately the choice is yours, but couldn't resist adding my thoughts. I hope you don't mind.

Hi Nigel

Thanks for being candid. And you are of course absolutely right. :-)

In fact, I had realised this when re-reading my original post earlier today, ie the information provided for this 'event' is publicly available, therefore it should also be unrestricted in my online family trees.

I'm still trying to get my head around the privacy requirements for online - beyond the simple decision not to display living persons' data.

The type of 'event' in this particular context was deportations during the Holocaust - I guess I was getting sensitivity of the infomation mixed up with privacy considerations...

Thanks again.
