How do I get rid of the private locked profiles? I did not intend to have them privet. I wanted every profile I add to be public and open to edits. I have no idea they were locked until I talked to Bobby Sporing and she could not see them.

The easiest way is from http://www.geni.com/list

Or from the menus, Family > lists

There's a toggle on the right - make this profile public

Everyone should review their lists periodically to determine the privacy settings they wish. Unfortunately from tree view it looks the same to us if its our own family group unless studying it closely for the green skinny border, or from profile view for the "public" green globe.

Great question Bill

The toggle switch works both ways - set as public, set as private

Rule of thumb of course is that living persons are set to private (exception is "notables" made Master Profiles with Manager permission).

For anyone deceased the public / private setting is what you and your family group desire. I consult with my cousins for a date range or a generation range to use: we're in agreement that except the most recently deceased we want our family group to show public.

My intention is to make every profile I create public unless otherwise noted. I want to build this amazing Tree.

I will not change your information: only ask you if it needs changing. Please return the favor.

My primary interest is the Clan Irwin, http://clanirwin.org/index.php
ACCEPTED VARIATIONS OF THE NAME THE DESCENDANTS OF THE ANCIENT SCOTTISH BORDER CLAN
http://clanirwin.org/history.php 240 Spellings plus Prefixes have appeared with the name ---MacIRWIN, MEIRWIN Suffixes have appeared with the name ---ERVINTON, ERVINGTON, IRVAINSTON, IRVINGTON, IRVINGHTON, IRVINSCOW, IRWINGTON, IRWINTIRE, IRWUITIN,

'Tis a Poore Minde that can only think of one way to spelle a word. ….

Across the history of the Clan, in literature, in genealogical records and in writings of all kinds, there have been many variations in the spelling of the name. Here is the largest aggregation known to exist. All have appeared in public record of some sort.

John Beaufin Irving, Chieftain, Irvings of Bonshaw, wrote in 1907 “ ... yet it was all the same name and referring to members of the one Clan... ”
