Remove Information from Ancestry.com
According to their site, Ancestry.com will "consider requests for removal of personal information from the copies of the records we hold on a considered basis."
You can delete your personal information from Ancestry.com by logging into your Account Settings. If that doesn't work you can email email@example.com with a request to remove the information. But the last time we checked, the form enabling you to contact them for removals was not working correctly.
