Donald HART Sr. said: I have been researching records for a Merton or William M. Hart in Canada. They are related records since it lists his mother and father. When I click on that record it says it has been removed? Why would records be removed?

A van Helsdingen said: Records are occasionally removed from FS, usually due to the record owner or custodian cancelling or not renewing consent for the records to be published on FS. The records that were removed may be, or are about to be, available on another pay-to-use website.0
Jeff Wiseman said: I'll also add that we don't know whether you are talking about person records in the FamilyTree database or Historical records from sources0
JeansLeaves said: If it is the Canada Census, you should be able to go directly to the Canada Census website, find the record and link from there. I ran across this recently. I could link to older family members through familysearch, eg John b 1825, but not John b 1885. But I could access 1885 John directly through Canada Census.0
A van Helsdingen said: According to this discussion at WikiTree, some of the Canadian censuses have recently been removed from FS due to a contract expiring and not being renewed. https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/968012/a...0
I had new members in my tree yesterday, but they were removed today. I searched for one and it says I’m related. Wonder what happened?0
