NGFS Conflict Policy:
It is not expected, but there may be
conflicts between what is believed to be
known by conventional genealogical
research and the results of this study.
While it is not the intent of the
society to cause conflict to its members
or participants in this study, it should
be understood that this test is another
tool to be utilized in your research
methodology. Every effort will be
made to confirm the results of the test
with the participant and through the
historical records if a conflict is
determined between what is believed to
be the family tree and what the results
of the tests may indicate.
The following conflict resolution
process will be followed for this:
1. The NGFS genealogist will contact the
participant and discuss the information.
An effort will be made to resolve this
by reviewing any known historical
records of the line in question.
2. If the conflict cannot be resolved
through the research, a discussion (by
person, phone, or email) will be held
between the surname participant, the
NGFS genealogist, and the NGFS
President to determine the desire of the
participant in how to best utilize the
information from the test.
3. If there is not a decision made
agreeable to all three of the
individuals involved in step 2, the
decision will be brought to the NGFS
Board of Directors meeting for a
decision of how
to utilize or protect the information.
