My extended family is rather large, and I would like to make a family tree. Given the nature of the data I'll have a lot of peoples personal data. Preferably their immediate family relations, name, a picture, DOB, phone number, email address, Facebook link. And potentially more.
Some of this information I know just because they're my family, I wouldn't have been given GDPR consent when I was a child first meeting them. This would be things like their name and who they're related to. After this I know some DOBs for similar reasons. I can get phone numbers from our family chat. I can get a picture and some additional information from Facebook. Etc.
Given that all of this information is almost definitely protected by GDPR could I legally make a family tree?
- The family tree is strictly for myself.
The family tree can only be seen by people in that tree. And they can only see people they're blood/adopted relatives of, and people married into the tree.
To be clear my fathers side could see my mother, but not her side of the family. I can see both sides, as I'm blood related to both.
What if I want to be able to include more than just the two families?
Say one of my cousins are in a similar situation and wants to include both their sides of the family.
