Family Tree Names #general


A number of family members have remarked that, when they viewed our Family Tree on Ancestry, many individuals had only a blank icon, and the notation below it - "living". With the permission of the individuals listed as "living", I was able to correct that situation. When entering the vital data for each person, check the small box that says "deceased". Their icon, when viewed, will then show their name and date of birth, followed by a small dash. There is no indication that they may not be living. But first check that the individuals have no objection to their info being online.

I would only do this with a private tree that you share with your family, unless the birth date and place are not shown.  Other options to share with your family include a private Facebook group or a tree on your own site (or on tribal pages).  I would not want to do this with a public tree.

Friedman, H George also allows you to invite individuals, by email address, to view your tree with the option to see living individuals. See the Tree Settings.
