Can this be altered to not require connecting to google (ajax.googleapis.com)?

Re Anonymous I assume you comment the watchlist function. What is the problem? security?

I am not the developer and not part of this magic tool.... but my understanding

  1. you are connect/login to WikiTree not Google
     
  2. ajax.googleapis.com is used for storing jquery files and that is nothing magic see Google Hosted Libraries and CDN

I think you should look into techniques like VPN and hide your IP number etc... feels much easier than asking software developers not to use Google CDN... 

Minor problem is the spelling of retriever

Spelling fixed.

It is better to use http://www.sdms.si:92/default.htm. You can combine request with checkboxes.

The problem is it's google - they don't need to track everything I do.  I have been blocking google in general and that server in particular for longer than wikitree has existed. It is one of the domains that is blocked by default in many privacy/security related addons.  But I can do without watchlist error reports.

It is just download of the library. you should also avoid using  http://www.sdms.si:92/default.htm. I include a few libraries from all over the net. Also wikitree is adding icons for facebook, twitter and google+. they can also track your IP there.

From your last name I presume you are very concerned about your privacy. you should use anonymizers to hide your requests.

Well it takes a few hours of calculations to get all those errors and also some manual work in the process. So for now that will not be the case. I think weekly update is enough.

For Watch list - I am working on a way to do that with Chriss. I believe it will be possible.
