Any information you add is, by default, private to you. If you add an event to a map pin, you will be able to see the pin and the associated information but no-one else will - unless you make the event 'public'. However, even then, you cannot make an event public if it breaks our "120 Year Rule", which states:
An event can only be made public if it is associated with a deceased person, or if the event took place more than 120 years ago. A person is considered deceased if there is a death event associated with them or if the 'Deceased' tick box is ticked in that person's record.
When you upload a GEDCOM file, you can ask that all events are made public by default - saving you lots of time manually changing every record. However, this process is still constrained by the 120 Year Rule. So nothing that can be considered to be associated with a living individual can be made public.

Does it assume that all those born after a certain date could still be living? Or does my genealogy program have to have a feature marking all of the deceased as no longer living?
