The Forest also gives you an additional layer of privacy for your profile and the profiles you have added. These new privacy options are opt-in. We encourage you to use the 'Who can view my profile from the tree?' setting to control the node privacy for your node and the nodes you manage.
 
 
Here are the new privacy rules for the Forest:
 
 
* You can still navigate outside your Forest without restriction
 
* Nodes are either '''private''' or '''viewable'''
 
** Private nodes:
 
*** Display First Initial and Last Name only
 
*** Include 'View Tree', 'Invite to Family', 'Invite to Friends' and 'Send Message' actions (as applicable)
 
*** Do not link to the associated profile
 
*** Include a visual indication for easy identification (grey node instead of pink of blue)
 
** Viewable nodes follow the same rules as all current tree nodes
 
* By default, the following nodes will be viewable, regardless of where they appear:
 
** Nodes within your Forest
 
** Nodes of the deceased
 
** Nodes of your Family group and Friends
 
** Unclaimed nodes you have added
 
* By default, when viewed by users outside your Forest:
 
** Your node is private
 
** Living nodes you add are private
 
** Deceased nodes you add are viewable
 
* New setting will enable you to choose the following for your node, living nodes you have added, and deceased nodes you have added:
 
** Who can add relatives to them in the tree?
 
** Who can view their profiles from the tree? (private or viewable)
 
 
We believe that these new privacy enhancements will preserve the ability to navigate your extended forest without limitation, while preserving each user's control over their own privacy.
 
 
=== View Tree===
 
Previously, only users already connected to your Tree could view and navigate your tree. The shared tree feature has been a great way to share your tree with others, but that tree is limited in size and functionality. Now you can enable Family (even disconnected family as noted above), Friends, and even ‘Anyone’ to view your tree. Note that when they view your tree, they follow the Forest privacy rules, so many of the nodes will be private to them.

Number of Trees and People

Your Forest page indicates how many trees are in your forest, as well as how many total people you are connected to on Geni through these trees.

Your tree includes your blood relatives up to 5,000.

The forest is defined as the trees linked to your tree by marriage. For example, up to 5,000 relatives of your aunt's husband will be in your forest.

However, if there is a tree linked by marriage to someone in your forest, those people would not be considered to be part of your forest. For example, relatives of your aunt's husband's sister's husband is connected to you but not in your forest.

The 'Connected' count does not include any duplicates, but does include people outside of your forest who aren't really part of your family in any meaningful sense. They it could include someone as distant as your aunt's husband's sister's husband's cousin's wife's husband's brother's fourth cousin's husband's aunt's sister.

Also, note that a bud (a node without any Blood Relatives) will not be included in your Forest page either.

List of Trees

Your Forest page lists every tree in your [Forest_privacy forest]. For each tree listed, you will see the name of each Tree (the partner that connects the tree to your tree or your partner's tree), who the tree is connected by marriage to (always your or your partner's blood relative), size of the tree, and the following actions:
