Hide Suggestion 591 and 592 When Child Profile Private or Unlisted

+1 vote
When viewing my suggestions, there now appear a number of suggestions for connecting possible father (951) and possible mother (952) based on relationships found between matching profiles on FindAGrave.

This is fantastic and I have connected quite a few in my own tree.

However, there are 6 suggestions for the children of a deceased profile (1903-1992) which is still private (with a yellow lock) and 6 of her deceased children (all died between 1989 and 2008) that are also still private (with an orange lock).

These suggestions are unfixable for someone who is not in the trusted list of these 7 profiles.

These are most likely the siblings, cousins, or aunts and uncles of a Wikitree member.

Can the suggestions list filter these out for anyone who is not listed in the child's trusted list?

Add data doctors to a question about a Suggestion, so Ales will see it. He is the one that creates the Suggestions. That will also make sure that other Data Doctors get it in their feed and can add some insight on your request.

Have you sent a message to the PM of the locked profiles or have you requested Trusted List access to the profiles?  That seems like a good idea to get the connections made or at least to review what is in those profiles, if you can't see everything.  

Have you looked to see if you can find sources to verify the information in Find a Grave?

The issue is not one that needs correcting. The profiles are all linked the same way they are in Find A Grave. There is nothing to fix on these WikiTree profiles.

The issue is that the tool used to make the suggestions based on WikiTree and FindAGrave cannot see those links on WikiTree because the profiles involved are all private.
Then, you need to add Ales as a tag, so he will definitely see this question.
