There's a bit of an overlap between genealogy and "people search", such as adopted people looking for birth parents, and people looking for long-lost relatives who may still be alive.
Sometimes, these searches may be fakes, from people trying to find somebody who doesn't want to be found (abusive spouses, skip tracers, witness protection, etc).
For example: "my deceased father said he had a long-lost younger sister, born Mary-Jane Doe in Chicago in 1932. How can I find her?".
Should there be a policy or FAQ in place to make clear that anything relating to finding possibly living people, or adoption birth parents, is off limits (however sad the story), since there's no way to know how genuine it is?
