I saw many that were probably born less than 100 years ago and, with no other information than their birth year, they would be private.
I understand WikiTree policy as it applies to living persons and I know that if a person has a birth year entered that is less than 100 years old and has no other information entered that indicates the person is not living, then WikiTree automatically makes the profile private.
The only thing is, just because someone was probably born less than 100 years ago does not mean that they are still living. You might be able to find death information for some of these, in which case the profiles could stay here. I just hate to see valuable information being lost because the person might be living and there is no profile manager
I wish we had a better way of handling these situations that could preserve the information. I don't uinderstand why the profiles couldn't simply be made unlisted, rather than deleted, and then whenever the 100 year date arrives, they could be automatically listed again.
