Your Personal Information Could Be Listed on This Website – Here’s How to Delete It
People are freaked out after finding their personal information posted on a genealogy website for anyone with internet access to see.
FamilyTreeNow.com claims that its purpose is to help you find information about your family's history. However, it is causing some concern.
