  • Why am I not autorized to view a FF matching person's tree?

    I was just checking the 'pending relationships' requests for my brother's FF matches. One match has a pending request to add my brother as a "4th Cousin." When I looked at my notes for this match, I see that we could not absolutely confirm a probable relationship, but, since that was several years ago, I clicked on her gedcom/tree to see if something new had been added. The message was: "eek! Looks like you aren't authorized to view this family tree."

    Why is the gedcom/tree even highlighted if I am not authorized to view it?

    How in the world does anyone limit the people who can view their tree? I don't see that option on my FF account or my brother's.

    And "why' would anyone do so -- especially when they are the person requesting to confirm a 4th cousin relationship?

    Thanks for any insight to this puzzling feature!!
