Re: Blocking

This is interesting & useful information for me. I've only been properly using Ancestry for a few months & recently came across a user who is obviously quite closely related to my dad. I contacted them & asked whether they'd be willing to share the 'private' information in their tree. I can appreciate that they chose not to do this, but was very annoyed that they didn't have the courtesy to reply that they'd prefer not to & then helped themselves to my photos!

I hadn't realised that by making my tree public I was potentially allowing others to make changes to it. I'm extremely careful with my research & never add anything that I've seen on anyone else's tree without verifying it for myself. It could be a disaster if someone else changed something that proved to be wrong.

It seems from reading this thread that I would be better if my tree was private. Perhaps I've misundestood? Bear with a newby if so, but advice would be welcome...
