What I also just noticed is that–if I click on the other names on that profile page, then the profile pages of THESE individuals come up, so that I can basically see much of my entire private tree on “Google” now! (Interestingly enough, ancestry.com has added “possible matches” to Mary Sisley, ALL of which are incorrect matches and inappropriate matches! But, the other profile sheets show my data and my username when I look at it on Google.

You know how paranoid I am about the juliebugs and searchdebs of this world! Also, both, David, Tech Support from ancestry.com, and I could clearly see my user name on the top of the profile page. I’ve got to go back on google to answer your last question.

Has that tree always been private or was it at some point public and then later changed to private?

Also- are you talking about this page:

Take a good look at “Google” and check out some of the people in your tree. I have a “Private Tree” “Do Not Show in Index”. Yesterday, I had the idea to go onto “Google” and type the name of one person in my tree into the “Google” search line. Put the name under quotation marks “Charles Lucas Boyd” into the search line. The first data that shows up on “google” refers to his marriage. I press on that….and what do I see? MY PROFILE PAGE OF THIS INDIVIDUAL ON MY ANCESTRY.COM PRIVATE TREE “DO NOT SHOW IN INDEX”. (Try it if you don’t believe me!) Then, a couple of “google” results later, again a site for him. I press on that and the “Search” engine of ancestry.com shows up giving details about what I have in my tree (pictures, details of when he ws where, etc.) I contacted ancestry.com immediately! David was very nice, put me on hold, and after a lot of head scratching suggested I write to “Solutions” at ancestry.com. I have tested this further. You can access a lot of data on ancestry.com via “google” and obtain quite a bit of info in this manner if you are not a subscriber.

Rather tiresome really.

I have email, a cell phone, and a landline telephone (which by the way works when we have power outages).

I do not do Facebook and in my opinion, Ancestry should refrain from sending subscribers to Facebook.

It’s getting very annoying.
