Comment Policy

Comments are welcome on all posts and pages.  Keep in mind that this is a family oriented blog, so please don’t post anything that you wouldn’t say to your family or that you wouldn’t want your family to hear.  Before you post your comments, ask yourself if these comments best represent your character and are something that you would say to your children or grandparents as these are two groups where we generally censor our conversation.  Constructive criticism, recommended improvements, and notification of errors are highly encouraged but should be addressed to me through email at san@occasionalgenealogist.com.   A good sense of humor, including sarcasm (my personal favorite), is always welcome.  Hateful, cruel, rude, offensive, belligerent, or downright nasty comments will not be approved to post. Only comments that are relevant to the topic will be posted.

Link & Image Policy

Yes, you may link to content and photos. You must link to the post and then to the home page. Please don’t link to the photo without the post and without giving me full credit. I do reserve the right to rescind my permissions, depending on the circumstances about the use of the content and photograph.
