Gerald (Jerry) Leon Lewis, Private User actually has a fairly close connection to you through Scott Knight's ex-wife, but she often ends up with profiles from abandoned trees due to her Curator duties on Geni. Since Geni is a single world tree with the goal of connecting everyone, we rarely separate accurate tree connections. But you can certainly take management of those profiles in your family - something mi² would probably appreciate. You can request management of any of those profiles from the action menu and, if you so choose, you can remove mi² as a manager if it's outside her family group.
Jerry, I see your "problems", - mimi is the primary manager of your children. The reason is natural and not related to the fact that she is a curator in Geni.
Take a look on your own profile, - and the others - the one who added those profiles and invited you is the key to this. Mimi, as a close relative to that person built that tree and invited her to join, but when she lost her interest and that account got flagged as abandoned mimi inherited those profiles and the profiles added by that user since she was the one who initially built the line and was the closest active Geni user when the account got flagged as inactive.
If it bugs you I am sure that mimi can remove her self as manager of those profiles, but still: As a family member she will still have full access. Time to know your family better?
Gerald (Jerry) Leon Lewis - I really recommend You to un-block any user here: http://www.geni.com/account_settings/blocked_users
Jerry, when you say your problem is that you're still "receiving" things from her tree, do you mean notifications/e-mails? If so, you might want to adjust your notification settings at http://www.geni.com/account_settings/notifications
That might address part of the problem for you.
This is not a venue for private trees. There, are other programs for that. Here we recognize that we are inter related. You ate absolutely a distant cousin whether you know me out not. I prefer to own myth distant cousins and delight in meeting them. Blocking anyone would cause serious harm because those are true relationships. Then I would never know I am your cousin and that masters to me. We are one tree, the same tree. That honors each of my great ancestors.
What my cousin Marianne Lyons Dagher Lyons Dagher said, except her typos! hugs to you cousin!
Gerald (Jerry) Leon Lewis dear... despair not, you are not alone. There are many individuals who thought that their family if private on Geni.com. However, they are unfortunately never meant to be. You need personal family tree software on your own PC/Mac to have total privacy. Once you have them online, it ceases to be private.
There are benefits in having them on Geni.com though. You get to know the extended families and tying loose ends. I get to know many unknown relatives through the collaborative works of many people, relatives or not.
We are after all descendants of the first two persons on earth, Adam and Eve. We are all related!
To clarify Aznijar's comments - he was speaking of collaboration. It should not be interpreted that your tree or family information is public. Living profiles are private and can only be view by family members. See http://www.geni.com/company/privacy
