GS2384-F - Dealing with Ethical Dilemmas in an Online World (F)

Session Description

The online world has made it easy for family historians to share and borrow information and resources. In this panel discussion moderated by Jill Ball panelists will discuss ethical dilemmas that face many family historians. Australian Geneablogger Pauleen Cass once blogged “As family historians we have a key responsibility to record the family story and the details we find with accuracy and careful consideration, so others can come behind and see why we’ve reached our conclusions. Does that mean we always have the right to burst open secrets that we come across?" As well as discussing this issue the panel may address conflicts of interest, information sharing, copyright and plagiarism and general online etiquette. The panelists will be presented with several scenarios to discuss. From the responses attendees will learn of possible problems they might encounter and receive guidance on how to deal with these with issues should they face them in the course of their research.
