Exactly which parts of your tree don't you want to reveil?
As in, isn't it possibles to cover it with the basic privacy rules? Eg people still alive or deceased in the last 10, 20 or 50 years remain private to visitors.

If you have other rules than webtrees has, and don't want to mark all your indi's as private, then keep two trees (which might mean record stuff twice)

The usual rule for creating more than one tree is that you want to apply different privacy rules to each part.

Your "village register" would seem to be a public resource, based on public sources.

Your personal ancestry is a "typical" piece of genealogy research, which both public and private information.

To me, it seems that these are separate resources. You may even want to publish the first one when it is complete.

I would create two trees, and accept that there will be a degree of duplication. Also, you'll be adding other sources to the records in your personal tree, that you wouldn't want to include in the "village register".
