When your Google search brings up a reference to a Wikitree Profile, it takes you to that profile on Wikitree as a "Public View"

i.e. with the privacy setting chosen by the Profile Manager.

If the profile is categorised as "Private", then no details are available through the Google search.

First all of the profiles that I could see are Open and have no birh or death dates.  They also had no biography to speak of so I do not see where privacy is an issue.

If you could add dates to the profiles on this line then changing the privacy settings could be an option, but with the information given and the nature of wikitree I do not feel that the privacy levels should be changed.
