@Jaak Tulp both profiles are private protected by a familygroup, only the familygroupmembers and the managers of the profiles can merge these

OK, i have family group with one of them, but the other manager has abandoned the tree, i think and she has been reported so too.

Please complete this merge:

I think a hectic clean up will need to be done as there are lots of duplicates between my tree and this one - which I could not find when I searched for the individuals before adding them....

done, but ask the managers to make public all their deceased profiles, I did for some, but couldn't do all, because they are in the faMILYGROUP

Caroline; please consider that when you're asking to merge profiles of living people and from the last about 150 years ; in most cases we cannot complete the merges due to privacy rules

I did what I could

Could someone please try to Clen-up the FREUD tree - starting with Jacob Freud, father of Sigmund:

Jacob Freud

ps. can you please Convince GENI - to make ALL Profiles 99 years and Older - Public - to avoid lot of these Merging Complications :)

I am a non pro user, not because I want to be but because I don't have the funds to pay as of yet, but I will. I have successfully taken my family tree back to 1640, 1510, and 1492. In a a couple places I've gone back 15 generations from myself. I would really like to go back farther which means having the ability to view some other member trees. Even if I'm only allowed view them at the third or fourth generation, I could find so much. Yes, Geni pro members are doin a lot of hard work and it is appreciated, but I've been working hard too, doin all of my own research my self ( credit of one branch to my cousin). It would still be considered research on a lower level to be able to view a few of the matches that Geni has found for me but am unable to view currently because I'm not pro.

Deonna McNatt If you post links here someone will try to help you

The FREUD tree -

has Several Merges that need to be Done - and there use to be 3 individuals - who were no longer active - and the profiles had abt. 5 Requests for Merges. Now the Profiles of Sigmund - have Private profiles - managed by Unknown (insted of th 3 previous people). I need a Curator to Fix the Tree - Merge what Needs to be Merged and "Un-Privatize" the Profiles - now Managed by Unknown - OR Merge them if they have Duplicates. Sigmund's tree - should be in Better shape than it is now :)

8/21/2011 at 12:43 PM

tried to do something with the Freud tree, hope it helps...

8/21/2011 at 12:45 PM

Agree with Peter. The default for profiles older than 99 years should be public. Personally, I cannot think of any reason to keep old (deceased) profiles private -- but certainly one could make them private if they choose. But when adding for the first time, the default should be public so that merges could be done more efficiently.

8/21/2011 at 12:53 PM

I go 1 step further than Judy - if someone wants an Old (99 yr, etc.) Deceased profile Private - perhaps other Genealogy sites or a PC - is better Solution for them !!

8/21/2011 at 12:55 PM

Eldon - since you asked - perhaps you can also try Fixing the FREUD tree. It's still a Great MESS - needing many More Merges !!

Thanks, Peter

Peter Rohel. I'll do what I can while Eldon merges. I may have a connection to his tree! But be aware, there are private profiles within the zone of privacy. So we will have to live with those for the moment. I'll work on the older ancestors.

I was able to fix a few things with the curator tool "check public," not enough, unfortunately. All the duplicates made by the fake Sigmund Freud (Mr. Unknown) have been reported to Customer Service.

Jaak Tulp your setup for merges was a huge help, many thanks.

8/21/2011 at 3:51 PM

Or. you can go to the little red square at the top next to your name, and click on merge issues and then those you collaborate with. They are all listed there. Merges, merges requested, tree conflicts, data conflicts.

@Erica. I´m glad, i could help.

8/22/2011 at 8:43 AM

Thanks everyone - there are too many Private Profiles of Dead People (one of beefs) - that should Not be Private. Still several outstanding Merges.

The (Mr. Unknown) - was likely created by GENI - because these Profiles use to be Managed by 3 individulas - who were Not Active for a Long Time. There use to be - abt. 5 Merge requests on many of the profiles.

rvk, done!

private profiles within the familygroup cannot be merged by non familygroup members and are privacy protected by the manager.
