Re: Online trees #general

I, too, have had trees online at Ancestry and My Heritage for many years and have had no problems. Yesterday, however, my problems began when I uploaded my tree to Geni.com. Within minutes, I noticed that someone I don't know, who is not a relative, was claiming that all my relatives were his relatives. It reached a point at which he was seeking to merge my family with his bogus family. I decided to close my account but couldn't fully do so because Geni required that I pass my tree along to someone else, in my case, a distant relative who has a tree on Geni. So now, I've closed my account and two people are managing it - one is a complete stranger and the other is a distant relative.
