Identity Theft–A Perspective

We have all been alerted to the specter of identity theft. And within limits, we as genealogists should be concerned about it, especially if we publish our genealogy information online. There is a danger however, that we can become completely paralyzed not only in our genealogy work, but simply in our normal lives if we don't use some reason.

James tanner, writing in his blog “Genealogy's Star,” gives us his take on the threat. His article also provides hotlinks to additional articles he has written on the subject.

Each one of us has to make a personal decision on how we will deal with this issue. James is thoughts are well worth consideration.
