Hi

I have run into trouble over requests for incidents (index cards copies) which occurred in 1940, where some were killed or injured (some accidentally).

Because, some may have been married, or had girlfriends or spouses in 1940, who may be still alive now, the Department holding the information has written to me saying to comply with my FOI request is a breach of an EU Regulation.

Here in the UK, we are still in Europe currently.

If a bereaved family publishes their death notice publicly in a newspaper, that may be a different matter, putting a link to it?

But to discuss 1990 death dates on here and not a link to an official site (where the enquirer can search them for themselves), is far too recent.

Mark
"George HOOD of Selby" Before 1812?

Born about 1785 (Yorkshire per 1841 Census)

Married Sarah RUSSELL at Selby 1815 newspaper - "both of that place".

Buried in the Quaker Burial Ground at Selby as "Not in Membership" in 1845, aged 60 years.

George HOOD of Selby was refused Membership of the Quakers in 1836.

Elected Overseer of the Poor of Selby in 1838.

Had both known (Selby) and unknown (some not stated 1846) property interests.

Possible (but unknown) links to COOK and/or PEARSON names.

Some of these death dates 1990 and 2001 isn't that a breach of Rootschat rules?


The moderating team hope that chatters are sensitive and tactful when posting information about a recent bereavement.

Personally I don't think 2001 is that recent now, we're 16 1/2 years away from the event and information is out in the public domain.

If it had been 16 days or 16 weeks or even within the last 6 months, then that's another matter.

However, if you are, as was explained, researching a distant line or where the family had fractured some years back, you may not know of recent events.

We have a more clearly defined 'no living people' policy and therefore ask people to be considerate with their posts.

Thanks Dawnsh.  We do try to be respectful and very often pass messages via the pm system as we come forward with information especially if that relates to living people.    The death information which was given criticism on this thread (1990 was linked in 2 replies), it is in the public domain. 

Hi Punch,

Think RJ137 put the icing on the cake for you with the obituary information and pleased that this has helped sort out your question.

Regards
Sandra

Thank you all. Yes, the obituary was a very good source of information for the christian names of the husbands. I am always so appreciative of the rootschat family.
