Information is public when it has already been reported in public databases, including but not limited to : newspapers, articles, books, online postings, phone directories, death certificate databases, birth certificate databases, marriage databases, divorce databases, tax records, voting records, and land records.
Information from these databases has and will appear on this site without any restrictions whatsoever. I will not impose any restrictions on the use of these sources, and no restrictions will be imposed. U.S. libel law allows the reposting of information from these sources, only restricted in the case where the underlying source reports a statement-of-fact knowing full-well that it is in-fact false. And that is the only restriction I will impose as well.
The privacy of contributors to this database will remain intact. No personal information, not already shared publicly in one of the above sources, will be shared here publicly or privately.
