Weakness in Privacy Protection via Anonymization

At the request of two relatives, I have anonymized their profiles.  I think a revision needs to be made to the system to remove DNA Connection data that remains on the profile.  Leaving this information provides evidence that there is a close family relationships, since current policy dictates that anonymization should only be done for the living or recently deceased.

what is ok to see?

If I can't see the profile I can't see the DNA connection or?

If the problem is that you who has access to the profile can see DNA connections then you need to disconnect all relations from those profile or ask some administrator to delete the profiles if possible...
Since they're still living (I assume, if they made this request), you have their privacy level at Private, right?  At that level, the DNA info isn't available on the public view.
Instructions for anonymization specifically say not to change relations.  Nan Lambert in the comment below has this problem solved.  Thanks Nan.
