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.
