All information on this site has been obtained from prior sites, public archives or other sources considered
Where anything is not exactly certain, I have noted as same.
Should any detail be incorrect, then (1) no offence is intended, and (2) I would be greatful if someone advises me of such so that I can either correct the
detail or remove it.
This page seeks to provide MY interpretation on Privacy
with respect to personal information / detail, and how it might relate to anyone
listed herein. Other sites which offer advice on Genealogical matters
offer suggestions / recommendations on what should or should not be made
In my professional career, I am involved
with maintenance and access control to personal details, as well as
interpretation of legislation of it pertains to the Australian environment.
This may or may not be consistent with legislation in other countries.
In general, I continue to encounter a 75-year rule. Essentially, this means certain information is not
made generally available until 75 years have elapsed since the date of the event.
For the purposes of this site:
Any detail dated prior to 1930, I consider to be in the public domain, and hence publishable.
Any detail I obtained from the prior websites (that is, from Jean van Waterschoot & Harry
Waterschoot), I have considered as readily available and hence, publicly available – it was after
all posted to the “web” in the years 1995-2002, by others. (I hold copies of these documents should anyone wish to enquire.)
1930, and not from the prior websites, has either been obtained from public
records, or from family members. Where this is from family member/s, I have
assumed it is on the basis that it may be published, and that they have
authority to also “speak” on behalf of their children, etc.
Do You Wish to Be “Hidden”?
I have not been able to confirm with all “living” members whether they are
happy that their
detail is available here or not.
Should I have
information on an individual and that individual wishes it to be suppressed and / or removed, then I consider
the responsibility lies with that individual advising myself of their requirement. Follow the “Contact Me” link from the
left-hand side menu.
NOTE: If an individual requests suppression, yet that detail is generally available, I am
happy to discuss further ... but consider suppression to be somewhat pointless. That said, if
the information proves to be less than readily available, I will quite happily suppress what I have here.
… YOU NEED TO LET ME KNOW
… I CANNOT DETERMINE THIS WITHOUT YOUR INPUT.
