Hi Loralee, welcome aboard. I think the short answer would be No, it's not typical or expected. But I think a little more explanation would help someone to give you a more definitive answer. Are you saying that you received a request from another member through the WikiTree mail system (which wouldn't reveal your e-mail address to the sender until you answer)? Printouts of what, from where? Does someone want to forward files or documents to you? (If that's the case, you should be able to run a virus scan of a file before you open it.) Could you give us some specifics, and explain how this relates to your new account on the site?
