Welcome to FamilyCentral. The best way to compile and share your family history information.
This is a list of terms and conditions that apply to all who choose to use our services. FamilyCentral is a company that provides internet services including database searches, family history websites, and family history research services.If you don't agree with any of the following you should discontinue using the service.
After creating a client account you are able to upload a data file to our FamilyCentral servers. Your file will be kept separate from other client files. The file and the data it contains can only be edited by you and those that you authorize. Your data will be indexed and key portions will be included in the main FamilyCental database. Information on living individuals is not included. This data can then be searched by extended family members. Source images and profile pictures linked to your ancestors may also be viewed when searching the FamilyCentral database. These items can be excluded from viewing if they are marked as 'private' in a Family Website.
Family Websites are generally based on an ancestral family. The user that sets up the site becomes the administrator. The administrator decides whether to make the site public or private. Public websites can be viewed but not edited by other FamilyCentral users. Users can request membership rights. The administrator can grant increased access privileges to any FamilyCentral user. If site users are granted editing rights they too, can invite other family members and grant them access privileges.
Private websites can only be viewed by the administrator and those he invites. Others have to request permission before gaining access. FamilyCentral will not be held responsible for any changes made by users.
Websites can be created from any person in your database. By upgrading to higher membership levels you can create more websites. This allows you to create a Network of family websites that includes any or all branches of your ancestry.
Features of your Family Websites allow you, and those you assign, to upload items, including pictures, scanned documents, and HTML documents. By uploading documents you are indicating that you have permission to do so, that you are not in infringement of existing copyright laws, and that you agree to these standards which are to be enforced by the database administrator.
No pornographic images are allowed. All such images will be removed immediately and the submitter's access rights revoked. If the problem persists sites found containing these images will be shut down.
Images attached to ancestors as profile photos should be actual representations of that ancestor.
The images of scanned documents should include the origin of the document and give credit to the repository and compilation information.
