Smartmatch on Private people

Hi

Why is Smartmatch showing match where they have "private" flag on. Have a lot of match, where the only thing I can see is <Private> <Private>. How about cancel match on private people.

Try go on it from other side: request membership on this private site, regarding matches. This is simplest way, i think.

What I have noticed is when it says private, its usually because the site manager has not marked this person as deceased. I usually go into more information on the smart match , and usually the information is there, just have to look deeper than the surface....means it takes longer.

Hi Erik,

Thank you for the feedback.

 The thought behind this was that you might want to contact the site manager and ask for details- It means

that there is a possibility of a match but we can not let you see the information because the site manager marked it as private/The person you matched with is alive.

 

We will discuss this approach and might change it.

 

Thanks,

I agree.  It's very annoying!  I routinely hit 'ignore this tree' when everything is marked 'private', but some keep showing up.

They keep showing up becuse keep changing the name on the database. I must say I have given up using smartmatch. It really too bad.

Well...I wouldn't go so far as to give up on smart matches.  I have found a good many gold nuggets in the chaff, some major big ones, and made some great genealogical friends with whom I have formed a mutual aid society.  The 'private' annoyance thing is a small price to pay.

You are absolutley right. What I dont understand is why people use a share facility like myheritage and then make it impossible by setting private. It must be counter productive and very annoying.

Hi,  I seem to get matches from a fairly small group of members who share relations with me; but few if any of the people in the trees are marked private except if they are still living and I am not a member of the particular tree.  Geoff
