Why is genealogy so expensive?
Everyone knows genealogy can be expensive. Website subscriptions costing hundreds of dollars, DNA test costs, document fees, research road trips, supplies and photocopies are just a few items genealogists shell out their hard-earned cash for.

Can you make one person private Ancestry?
If your tree is public, the only way to make someone private without making the whole tree private is to mark them as living. If you upload files to a public tree that you later make private or delete, your files may continue to exist on family trees of people who saved them to their trees while your tree was public.
