Just trying out the forum part.
Started a discussion that is said to be public. Don't know what that means really.
What's the difference from a family discussion?
Who can see and write stuff in this thread?
All branches of everones trees?
Still a bit lost up here, please help me out.
Say hi in this thread
;-)

Shalom Isolde,
a public discussion can be seen by ANYONE on Geni.

As dozens of public discussions are started every day, then by default everyone will NOT see them. The way to see it (and all others), is to clear the checkbox on the index of public Discussions that says "Show only discussions I'm following".

A family discussion can only be seen by actual members of your own Family Tree, or people you invite to join this group.

OK, thanks.
Sorry for going so very public, kind of thought that the public discussion could be seen by anyone in my "big" tree and that the family one was for only the members of my "big" tree that I had selected into a smaller family group.
Well, I'm very new here and I'll learn. ;-)
Thanks for answering!
