Some family members do not like to received notification of family news, but they do not realize that there is an easy way for them to adjust their privacy settings to opt out of
any particular member's news. ie. on the profile page under "More Actions".

Many members do not explore the site and do not know about "Help", "Blog" etc.
Would an email listing the easy ways to tackle a few of the major issues that new, low-tech or lone-tree accidently merged members most complain about be possible?

Eventually we are going to move all notifications to following, including family members. This will be a much simpler system and will give users more control over their family notifications.

Thanks, that is a wonderful idea!

In any case: In every email you get from Geni there are clear instructions at the bottom on how to stop them.

Geni should consider copy this instruction to the top of the email as well because it surprises me how many who don't follow the instructions.

Where can I find "More Actions"?

@ Lisa: First you go to the profile page of the Geni member you want "removed" from receiving family notifications---

On the top right of each profile page there is a pale blue " Follow " button. Underneath this "Follow" button are a couple of link options

Send Message
Request to Collaborate
" More Actions "

Click on the "More Actions" link and a new menu of options will appear including "Remove family member" or " Add member to Family Group"

I think clicking the remove link will also result in the removal of family notifications to that person.

However, Noah's proposal is a much more elegant solution, and will be most welcome.
