Cemetery cites privacy issues

This is not really the domain of this blog, but it's interesting and worth sharing. An amateur genealogist began compiling the list of the deceased at Old Union Christian Church Cemetery in Lexington, Kentucky, but stoked the ire of the church board, saying that his publishing of the information online violated the privacy of those buried there and their families. His Web site has 475 documented burials at the site. A Kentucky law professor says the information is in the public domain.
