My suggestion would be for you to verify the information you were given before you publish it anywhere. I received a handout once at a family reunion that said my great great grandfather was born in Bibb Co, Alabama. When I did my own research, I found that he was actually born in Bibb Co. Georgia. So, if I were you, I would independently verify everything you were given.

As far as what to do with it after that, I don't really have any suggestions. I guess it's up to you how you want to distribute the info. There are copyright issues you need to research. Also, sometimes there can be issues when it comes to publishing info on living people. So, look into it, then figure out how you want to handle it. Just my two cents worth.
