I feel-NO. Would you want your name all over the web and newspapers, from some stranger. I post information about deceased members only. By just posting the surname, and first name of lost family, my luck is, somebody has seen it and passes on the information. Then the ancestors will help you find these people. When I use snail mail, remember a lot of people are having financial difficulties. Debt collectors will use certified letters to get people to respond. I use envelopes that are colorful, example say christmas card envelopes, birthday card envelopes. I also pick up colorful business envelopes on sale at Office depots. My logic is, if a person recieves say a green, envelope from someone they don't know, they may be curious to open it up. When they open it up the introductory letter will be printed on a color other than white. If they lay this around somewhere and need to find it to show someone, they remember that green envelope with the yellow letter. Wouldn't you be curious?
