I recently discovered that my living relatives as well as my name was posted on Ancestry.com and requested that it be removed. Hower, this was in the agreement when I joined, that my request would be honored if it abused my privacy. Also, there is a picture of my husband used, without permission; he is living. I was told today, and I quote, "We apologize for the inconvenience. However, each of the databases you linked to are provided as public by the Federal Government. By law, we cannot remove them. Please contact the government agency appropriate to the records in question.
If there is anything else with which we might assist you, please let us know.
Please delete all of the names on that page: Sterling Adair Pitts, Katheryne Belle Hargrove, Enoch Lee Pitts, Nannie Adair, Elizabeth Ann Shouse, Belle Young Scott. ............
So BEWARE of those who pretend to be professionals for the next thing you see may be YOUR living relatives, and perhaps even pictures of your CHILDREN! Seven other individuals have advised me that they are also discovering the unprofessional behavior of individuals who have published information not even of their line, even giving names of their living children!
