Thank you for hosting the Evidence Explained Forum. I recently submitted an article to the NGS Quarterly and they required evidentiary changes. I have three questions.
1. Since the internet is constantly changing, what are we to do when a cited source is removed? Rootsweb is the perfect example; nobody can find much of anything there now, thanks to Ancestry. Since Ancestry recently purchased Find-A-Grave, most Find-A-Grave information will likely soon require an Ancestry subscription to find it.
2. To use FTDNA effectively, you need a password and a kit number. Obviously, passwords can change at any moment.
3. Is it permissible to cite a GEDmatch.com DNA match if that person has never acknowledged my request for a release of information?
Thank you, Cynthia
