Does anyone know why I can't click on some of my ancestors and view their profiles, when before I could? It says I don't have persmission to view them. Case in point is Frances Macon, who married Daniel Pegram. They are in my direct line as Great(++...)grandparents. It's alittle frustrating because they are direct line and not collateral. Thanks in advance for any thoughts on this.
Thanks for your response Brendan. Here's the url: http://www.geni.com/family-tree?ref=ph#6000000006728891126. I noticed that the entries on my tree for them are greyed out looking instead of blue/pink.
Looks like you had some profiles in your direct line that were not marked "public," which were then merged with other profiles ALSO not marked public. The resulting merge created a private profile, and (if I understand things correctly), the permissions on a private profile can only have one manager.
Anyway, I was able to undo some of the merges and then enable the public view on some of the surrounding profiles. But it's best to make sure that all of your profiles are public before attempting to merge them.
He Brendan, I have a similar problem. I am denied access to http://www.geni.com/search/matches/6000000005229778205. I have sent a request to collaborate with my relative two weeks ago, but have yet to get a response. I discovered my thirteenth grandmother on my tree matches.
There is another one too, on the same page, http://www.geni.com/search/matches/6000000005027413295
Same scenario as above.
That makes sense.
You might need to make the next level down public as well to do those merges. Brothers and sisters of George Pegram
I get access denied to both of those also. What is the url to the page where you got those links?
In my previous message, I didn't address that to you. I think you may be the only one that can change that next gen to public.
Geoffrey, thanks for the info. I had never come across that before.
Here is the url:
Its on my Tree Matches tab in the Merge Center. http://www.geni.com/search/tree_matches?ref=ph They are:
Charles Lefebvre (1692 - d.) http://www.geni.com/search/matches/6000000005027413295
and Inconnue De Montaguerre http://www.geni.com/search/matches/6000000005229778205
another one Brendan,
Here is Charles Dit St. Jean Lefebvre
It looks like the profile is private. Maybe contact the manager and try a collaboration request.
We call that a ZOMBIE and the curators have tools that may help.
I just made Charles Lefevre "public" and "editable."
Go forth and merge now!
We have a "zombies please" thread here, please post your "should be deceased and public" historical profiles there so curators can assist:
And this explains more about Zombies and how to hunt them down:
I believe that a curator can change it. Since the person was born over 300 years ago, there is no argument that there is a privacy concern. And, since they allowed they connected the profile into the big tree, they aren't saying that it's private. The manager has added 856 profiles into Geni though, so he probably didn't set it up and run.
He also has 14 collaborators, so one of them could fix it too.
You logged in from an account created in 2012 with only you as a profile. You must have another account with a different email address perhaps.
You can contact Geni about your (lost tree) & subscription:
