masked info & settings
Joseph Meaux Jr
- Close
I have been inviting guests to view my tree.  Unfortunately, when they go to look at it, several of the areas are masked (grayed out), showing them no information.  They are unable to verify if the info I am putting there is correct.  Although I DO NOT want everybody to go and correct any info I have put down, I would like them to be able to see if the info is correct.  How can I do this?  Or do I need to invite them from the site directly, rather than sending them a link from another e-mail account?

u will have to invite them as members of the site, info of all living people should be masked out to the general guests. Before inviting them .>SETTING, >PRIVACY, and select prefered settings.

Thank you for your reply.  It does clearify many things.

Only members (whom you can always dis-invite) have full access unless you specify otherwise under Settings.  For non-members/guests living persons are grayed out as (private).  Personally, I like it that way.

Dear Mavis Ling--Somehow our correspondence got mixed up, probably because I appear as 'Ing'.  The way you are most likely to prevent downloads is to make your site completely private, although a determined person could probably still do it.  I, however, have found that being generous with my (enormous) research and information has paid me back many times over.  Of course I appreciate it when people ask if it is okay and thank me, but I am old enough (70) not to expect but always be delighted by good manners.  I myself always ask if it is okay and  thank people when I download something.  I, too, started with one little sheet of paper containing 6 generations put together by my grandmother in the 1930's and preserved through the WWII Japanese concentration camp years in Indonesia and was generously helped along by several people researching the same ancestors.  I hope you don't let your hurt feelings interfere with the enjoyment of your genealogical work, which, after all, is a labor of love and will surely contribute to your spot in heaven by rescuing a whole lot of people from total oblivion.  I wish you all the best--Ingrid Frank.
