Trust access for someone unrelated

My father-in-law paid a genealogist to research his family tree. I was wondering about giving the guy trusted access to all my data so he could enter stuff here as he progresses. Is that an OK thing to do? If so how do I give him access to everyone and continued access to new stuff I put on ( without having to remember to click the  selections each time I create someone)

Hi David,

You can use http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Special:TrustedListChanges for bulk additions.

And you could do that periodically if you don't want to add him to the Trusted List after creating a new profile.

There's no way to automatically give someone else access to all the profiles that you're trusted to access.  This is an important part of WikiTree's privacy controls. Since the controls are on individual profiles you could give this genealogist access to deep ancestry without giving him access to modern family members. And accordingly, for example, a cousin or in-law of yours could put you on a Trusted List without also giving this outside genealogist access.
