Hi Anon,

Usually if someone is marked 'private' it is because it is a living person, only people on the 'trusted list' can see the details.

Look at this section - http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Privacy

This will also explain the coloured circles which define/indicate different levels of

accessibility.

Hopes this helps

The profile manager might select the highest privacy level (unlisted) for any number of reasons, and of course this is the default for living children.
