Presidents and Relationship Finder problem

+9 votes
125 views
I know that many of you kept pages where you displayed your relationships to the US Presidents.   Unfortunately due to the new privacy requirements, all of the living presidents have profiles that are unlisted.   Therefore, you will get an error when you try to run the relationship finder for those profiles.   

While many of you have asked to be on the Trusted list for those profiles to allow the relationship finder to work, I hope the Team can find a better solution.

I think an exception should be made for those with public biographies. As an example, I can access any information that was on WikiTree on Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Presidents_of_the_United_States) including family details that could be hidden on WikiTree.  To me, any public figure whos information is readily available elsewhere should not be unlisted.

I would like to be on the trusted list.  Also what about the past post on Facebook to relatives wanting to know their relationship to the President’s.  In other words President Bush, President Bush Jr., President Obama, President Clinton have already  been posted for years for the younger relatives?  President Trump is one of the ones that I am not related too.  With the 4 of July coming up it’s time to take a look at the Revolutionary War heroes and President Washington.  Along with all the other Presidents.

How about a private, private, private and then the President.  In other words a partial tree.  The census is blind 50 years out.  Perhaps the same rules should apply to Wikitree.
