I was looking at DNA matches on Ancestry. A good match, 65 cM, came up. But when I looked at the details on my list of matches, it said “Tree Unavailable.”
When I clicked on the match name, I got to this next screen. You can see at the bottom where it says “The connected family tree is private” and it gives me a button to click to contact the match.
But up at the top, where my red arrow is pointing, I can once again click on the name to get the Member Profile for Match. Once I scrolled all the way down on that screen, below “Recently Added Content” I can see that Match does indeed have an Ancestry Public Member Tree.
Sometimes you have to dig to find the trees, but if Ancestry “shuts the door” with a “Tree Unavailable” message, be sure to walk around the whole “house” and peek in all the windows to see if you can’t find a tree hidden on the Member Profile page.
