Thank you for resonding to my survey of the type and time period public records should be available on this blog.
Not one person expressed concern over the types of records that have appeared on this blog. Several mentioned the use of the federal government's 72 year restriction on access to census records as an appropriate restriction for online records. That means that public records prior to 1937 are acceptable for online use. A couple of people believe that any public records should be made available as long as the persons mentioned are no longer living.
I appreciate your comments and if you have not yet let me know your opinion, you may still do so by leaving a comment at the end of this post or sending an email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org A little later I plan to define my personal policy for using public records online and will post it here.
