New GeneaNet Option: Hide Living Individuals in your Online Family Tree

Posted by admin on Jun 3, 2011

You can now hide some selected living individuals in your GeneaNet Online Family Tree.

These individuals will stay hidden every time you import a new GEDCOM file to update your family tree.

We hope this will help you with privacy issues…

Go to ‘GeneaNet > Online Family Tree > Privacy > Living Individuals > Living Individuals’:

Your ‘Living Individuals’ privacy option must have been set to ‘Semi-Public’ or ‘Private’:

EN-hidden-individuals-01.jpgSelect the ‘Hidden Individuals’ tab then click ‘Add an individual’:


Enter the first letters of the surname/first name of the individual to hide then click the ‘Add’ button at the bottom of the list:


The new hidden individual is now listed as first_name.n.surname where n is a unique number to identify individuals with the same full name.

You can remove an individual from the list at any time by clicking the ‘Delete’ button.


Select the ‘Advanced Options’ tab to change the number of years that define if individuals in your family tree are said to be alive or not.
