Over on the Facebook group: Genetic Genealogy Tips & Techniques, I just answered what I thought was an excellent question with (what I also thought) was a very good answer.
Is it proper, or allowed, to copy that person's question to G&FH (giving credit to the source of the question and the person who posed it) and then pasting my own response as an answer?
The reason why I want to do this is that on Facebook, this Q&A will get lost in the sea of Facebookness and will be forgotten, and I know I will never be able to find it again. Here at Genealogy Q&A, the question will be made available forever, by tags or searchable and I won't lose it, and other people here will benefit from it.
So which of these possibilities would and would not be allowed?
I post the question and answer, not giving credit for the source of the question.
I post the question and answer, giving credit for the source of the question and who posed it.
I post the question and answer, giving credit for the source of the question and who posed it after asking the Facebook poster for permission to post it here.
I ask the original poster to join our group here and post the question herself and then I add my answer. The trouble with this is, of course, I would think there is a good possibility that the original poster has no interest in doing this.
