I have been quite lucky with GenesReunited and found some useful contacts. However someone has recently put all my recent family info on their tree, partly my fault for putting it on my tree in the first place I know. (I have removed it now). I have contacted this person twice to ask them to remove it, but she's not replying and not removing it.

Report this person to management at GR, Beverley. Not saying it won't take time, but you're not supposed to put living people in your tree without their permission. (You can't object to her putting the dead ones in.) Chris

Interesting points raised in this thread.  I have not had any problems with GR yet in the last 4 to 5 years and have had a lot of contacts in the first week (3 cousins etc) keep finding more matches and since not all of my tree is on GR (I have 13,000) then I am still doing well with the contacts.  Not found many yet on RC but still hoping to find some more.  Did PM somebody a few times on RC with a definite link but no reply yet!  I also use world connect and gencircles to see if any matches.  Generally google and other specific search engines that search genealogy sites.  Basically I use a blitz everything approach and find I do get contacts.

Any chance of a vote on this.
GR "yes" or GR "no"  :-\
How does the poll thing work on this site?  Genuine question.  Is this sort of issue what the poll is for?

Well my Genes Reunited problem has been sorted out....sent them a message on friday, had a reply from the person who had added my living names to her tree, after I'd contacted her twice and had no reply, she said sorry and removed the names, sent another message to Genes R last night to say what had happened. Got a reply from them this morning and they confirmed the names are removed! Now that's what I call service ;D

Hi

I don't know if this question has been answered But

I used to be able to view my names when searching
Does anyone know why this has changed?
