Easier to make the tree private.....
My tree got "damaged" twice.
Once in the bad old days when you accepted a single entity as related? It would accidently merge the two branches without the pop up. I didnt touch my tree for afull year it made me so sick. Records I had entered and no longer have access to? Gone! poof. Worse is when I saw it start to be seen as a "source" in teh worlkd tree because so many researchers that trusted my tree at time also changed their trees cliking on mine!!!
Then when I was semi private a relation to my child changed a critical branch to the bad.I wasn't aware until the tree they added contacted me and said "um, not to be mean but WHO are you?"
So for now, I stay full private. I allow viewers and if they respond they are related? I begin contact to arrange access to more information. If they do not respond they are removed from access in my "spring cleanings" of invitees. My experience does worry me about how many just add from the World Tree without double checking afterwards.
I want to share but I want the infomation applied correctly
