Re: Online trees #general

I have also had my tree online for about 13 years,  I have a tree on Ancestry and MyHeritage as well as my own site   I did change hosts about two years ago for my site, and also went to TNG rather than having lots of small files that I had to upload.  I am happy with my Ancestry tree and with my own.  I discovered that I really needed to make my MyHeritage tree private due to privacy issues.  MyHeritage does a good job with privacy until you invite someone to your site.  At that point they can see lots of details on living people - if the details are there.  My original Gedcom came from software that did not automatically suppress details on living people, so instead of making others site members I send them to the sarahsgenies site.   I have met cousins - and gotten a tremendous amount of information because I had an online tree that was searchable by google.  On my husband's side, his third cousin in Denmark, sent us his whole family there - and we have visited on Skype because of that online tree.
