If you're more like me, and would rather try to keep some control of what the Internet releases about you, then below are the steps to follow to get some of this information removed.

If you found more information than you would like to see floating in cyber-space then let's move on to step two.

  • Click on the link to go to their Opt Out page - FamilyTreeNow.com/optout
