How to build a private and unsearchable research tree.


You may have heard people say they used a 'quick and dirty' Private family tree to find some ancestors to do some reasearch on.  When I heard that I wasn't sure what they had done and it sounded an unusual thing for a careful genealogist to do.  The issue was also clouded because you can't see anyone else's Ancestry Private Trees, because they are Private!

In the attached document I have provided a step by step guide on how to set up a Private Tree in Ancestry.  I chose Ancestry because of its large underlying database (18 million records) but you could use a similar approach for the other Research sites that include a tree building facility that you can keep Private.  Please do keep it Private or you may upset people whose help you will need in the future!

Happy Hunting! '
