Agreed! My income is kind of limited, but Ancestry is the one luxury I allow myself. I'd be lost without it.

I have a question that may also relate to the "private trees" topic: Tonight I saw a tree that copied almost all of the documents and photos I had scanned on my Great Grandmother. She was the only surviving child that had a single child, so the other tree would be a distant link if I didn't recognize the owner. But they copied down to the minutia of a personal card.

The only photos they missed were on the brief time my Mother (at a year-old infant), Grandmother (also still alive), Great Grandmother, and Great Great Grandmother were together. Being bound to my yet-living Mother and Grandmother, are those blocked from being viewed, and thus captured by others? It would be a great way to hide photos (but still having a public tree) by also linking them to a living or fictional living relative.

Thank You for answering my question in such a concise manner. I had a hunch, but lacked the energy to look it up when I responded. Is there anyone that has gone to an extra step to binding a photo extraneously to a living person (or even a fictional individual) purely to keep it from being viewed?

To keep it from being viewed? No. I always figure the more copies of it there are out there, the better odds it will survive.
