So this completely explains why you do see the marriage event once logged in.


When the parents' deaths are ___ years in the past and all the children are adults, perhaps the deceased parents no longer need to be private.

I read somewhere families are kept private because they may contain source references etc that could comprimise the privacy of all family members.
I think me and a few others don't follow (or agree with) that logic, but that is the given explanation.

That makes sense to me. On the other hand, I hide all sources from visitors anyway.

It is not just genealogical "sources." How many of us have dealt with website challenge questions that ask something like these?
  • Mother's maiden name
  • paternal grandfathers name

You might use a "fake" answer for those challenge questions, but do you feel confident that your siblings and cousins also do that?

I am not saying that you should never publicly expose information on the recently deceased, but I do urge you to think through the implications and to weigh the risks and benefits so that you don't break their trust and damage relationships.

Of course you need to be aware of and honor any privacy laws in the country/state/district where you are located.

  • Mother's maiden name

There are other sources for that. I've been bawling out banks and others for decades for that IDIOTIC practice.

Oops! Today, while NOT logged in, I see in “on this day” my aunt who has eight children still living. However, if I click on her name, it hides the marriage and all the children until I log in. So, it hides the marriage, but not the death (or birth).

I don't see any family of Laura either. The family is private, not the person.
Me thinks this works like it's supposed to.

It hides the *family* events, because the family has living members.

But it does not hide the *individual* events - because the individual is dead.

I would very much support this suggestion.

In another thread:

www.webtrees.net/index.php/en/forum/help...arriages-not-showing , I have expressed my surprise of this (to me) new privacy feature and would very much like a way of reverting it short of adding a 1 RESN none to all marriages by hand. As I argued there, the family page (in my setting at least) doesn't give anything away not already showing on the family tab, and it irks me to no end to dicover missing marriage data on long deceased ancenstors.

The other thread has been left unanswered, but I'd still really like to know if this means "low priority" or means "not gonna happen - ever!".

If you persist, it's a non-changing feature, I'd be grateful of some pointers on, how to hack it away in my own installation.
