You Might Want to Delete Your Personal Info From This Site
It's kind of creepy that your personal info is out there like this and I'm sure this is not the only site. It's a website called FamilyTreeNow.com and it has a very large collection of genealogy information. Now, I say you "might" want to delete your info because it's up to you if you want this info out there or not. Perhaps you'd like to trace your family tree or keep your info up there for others to work with. It's completely up to you.
It's kind of weird. I typed in my name and up popped info on my current address, my old addresses and some other things. I'm sure there are plenty of other sites that have this kind of info and it's always going to be out there but this is one instance where you can delete your information and here's how to do it.
- Go to FamilyTreeNow.com
- Scroll all the way down to the bottom and click on "Privacy".
- Once you're on the next page, about halfway down, you'll see a line that says "Opt Out of Living People Records." To the right of that, it say's "Opt Out Here." Click on that.
- Search for your name. There may be a few different ones but you'll know yours when you see it. Then click on "View Details" then click on the red button on the following page to finish removing your name and personal information.
