Smart Matching & private Web sites
Viki
- Close

Hi all,

 on the first - you family websites and software are wery wery perfect and Smart Matching - excelent!Wink

But I have one question (it is for me no problem, but the others can have other opinion):

When I obtain the Smart Matches contacts, and go to the tree, it's OK and understandable, when the websites Private is, that I no acess have and I must contact webmaster.

But when I select "compare" not "Go to the tree page", I can see complete personalien (with birth date and name) the nearest familie of this person.

Is ii OK, or is it a bug? (I can, when I write whatever person from this view in my Tree,  with this way go over the whole Familytree even if this is defined as Private ).

When you get SmartMatches, we show you a “snapshot” of the part of the tree surrounding the person that was matched. This helps you better identify and confirm that the results are accurate. When you get a SmartMatch in a tree has living persons in it, those persons are listed as <private> Lastname if you are not a member of the site. Only the full names of people who MATCHED are shown. There is no way for anyone to view the whole tree of another member in the Compare window.  It is possible that you have a large number of matches in another person’s tree, so you are able to see the surrounding of a large portion of the tree. If that is the case, sounds like you must be related to the webmaster of the other site and you should get in contact with him/her right away! J

I have added a lot of people to my Family Tree Builder tree by adding or merging family members of the MAIN PERSON when I get a Smart Match.

But sometimes there are a number of them identified as only 'Private' and the family name.

I don't need to know the name of these people BUT I do want them IDENTIFIED. That is, given some identifying symbol so that when I compare that Smart Match 'merge' with another for the same Main personI know which have already been merged.

If they are all called 'Private' Smith (or maybe just the surname, Smith, Smith, Smith....) I can easily add them more than once to my tree. I have just added a total of ten to one family and I am sure it should be five. And since they are separate individuals but are all given the same 'name', if I delete any, how do I know whether it is the duplicates I am deleting?

Could you mark them as 'Smith A', 'Smith B', 'Smith C' so that I can identify them separately from each other.

Or even, using the case in point, say, 'Lucy May Griffiths' (private) child, A', 'Lucy May Griffiths' (private) child, B', so as to give them a more or less unique identifier, mark their place in the family and identify which family.   The program colours them pink or blue, I think, for gender.

I respect people's privacy but it is a pain to use the system with no unique identifying symbol.

Thanks,

Geoff
