Is it just me, or does anyone else notice that lately more and more people are marking their family trees as private? We are getting plenty of matches to the two DNA tests we've taken, but I notice, especially on the Irish side of the family (the side we know the least about) we seem to be getting almost every other match to a private tree. A lot of them are really big trees, too. It's so frustrating because I don't know if it will be a valid match without seeing anything, and I don't really want to send out multiple begging e-mails that may not prove to be at all useful. Please, if you have a private tree, consider sharing with others! ..... I just hope the private tree people are enjoying all my research when they can see my tree and I can't see theirs!
