Thanks for writing back, Gordon. One of my friends wrote me that he had similar problems with Reunion.com and that he started getting the Nigerian banker scam emails, soon after joining. So, maybe they are not so legit!

As for me, I refuse to put my research on ancestry.com, and I would appreciate it if anyone who "borrows" from my information will refrain from listing it on ancestry or rootsweb or other public formats. I will gladly share individually, but I've seen too much personal information listed, some of it on family members still living.

My apologies for the email, purporting to come from me, but actually coming from the site, reunion.com Though it is a legit site, they made unauthorized use of my address book.
I'm a bit worried about some of these ancestry sites. One of the cousins is, too. She objects to handing over the research she has done and then having to pay to make use of it later on. I think that might be ancestry.com
but I am not sure. Just how legit is a site that would pull something like that -- unauthorized use of a personal address book?
