It goes without saying that I am “open for business” re: Thomas Bradley and James Banks Bradley. Please review both pages and let me know what I’m missing/wrong about. Each page has a “comments” section. We can interact there as a running, open discussion on each person and the research we’re doing on them.
Do you use a blog reader? If not, skip this paragraph. If you do, make sure to put this page in your reader so you’ll get automatic updates as often as I post.
Recommendations. It’s been suggested that we consider making this site private. In that case, each person would have to get permission to access the site (not on a per visit basis, but just once). The advantage to this is we can be more open with information. For example, we can post names of living people with less concern about privacy issues. The disadvantage is that first-time access to the site becomes a little cumbersome. Also, people that we may not know are out there looking for Bradley information (and therefore may have some helpful information to offer) will not benefit from our site. We may not even find out they are out there. I can go either way. What do you all think? In the meantime access is open to all and I will not be posting any information for living relatives. I will also cover up any SSNs before scanning vital documents.
