Genealogists running into AVG

The cards that are used to connect families in provinces in the Benelux as well as the family trees are published online are hugely anonymous, which means it’s nearly impossible to connect the dots as you don’t know when someone was born. Pictures and documents are being removed willy nilly from archives, in contravention of the archive laws (or openness laws, as they garauntee publication of data after a certain amount of time). Uncertainty about how far the AVG goes are leading people to take a very heavy handed view of it.
