ALL USERS: Proper Etiquette for Posting Genealogy Messages on the Internet
Dear FamilyTreeCircle Members,
A gentle reminder to those who need it ... It is considered bad etiquette to post full dates of birth/marriage/addresses on the living with or without their permission. It also raises the possibility of identity fraud.
And for goodness sakes please don't tell everybody where you live!
Likewise you will avoid spamming if you don't display your email address here, that's what the 'personal messaging system' is for.
Please read the following data at this site for more information:-

Update: It would be appreciated if journals were written in proper sentence case of upper and lower styles instead of fully blocked upper case as this denotes 'screaming'. Save the caps lock for surnames so that they stand out. Thank you.
Also, can we please have subject headings for new journals pertinent and to the point. Example, 'Looking for SMITH and CARTER from Pennsylvannia' instead of trying to have one's life story in the topic heading and nothing in the journal body.
