I was wondering if it were possible to add Robert the Bruce ID LDQR-3KB to this section.
Hi @BretSvoboda1. We believe you are asking if the Discovery Activity titled, "Famous Relatives" can include your distant ancestor, Robert the Bruce LDQR-3KB.
The Discovery Activities are created and updated through information that is connected to your pedigree in the Family Tree program. If you don't see Robert the Bruce listed as one of your "famous relatives" you should still be able to find his Discovery Page as explained in the following blog article from early in 2021.
We followed the instructions in the article and using your ancestor's ID number we were able to find the following Discovery Page.
Please be sure that if you go to this Discovery Activity that you scroll through the different types of famous relatives that are mentioned. We did not see a category for "Monarchs". We did see Leaders, but most of the individuals listed in any of the Famous Relatives pages are people who are more contemporary, some of whom actually lived in your lifetime or the in the lifetime of your parents and grandparents.
We continue to develop the Discovery Activities portion of FamilySearch based upon information that is in Family Tree. Perhaps you could click "Ideas" in the Community and suggest that the Leaders category should include even Kings and early Monarchs to be truly inclusive. Sharing our ideas is often the feedback that is needed to encourage FamilySearch administrators to provide enhancements to existing programs or features as described in this additional knowledge article from our Help Center about providing feedback at FamilySearch.
We hope you will check out the Discovery Page for the LDQT-3KB record, and that you consider providing additional feedback as described in the article we have provided.
Thank you for your question. This discovery experience is still being rolled out and more pages are being created. Those who are living will not have a discovery page. You can go to this URL: https://ancestors.familysearch.org/en/ and at the end of the URL, add the PID of one of your relatives like this: https://ancestors.familysearchorg/en/KP3G-S5F and see if the software will build the Discovery page. You can also search the FamilySearch Blog may also be helpful.
Thank you CDBurk, I will see about going to that section and trying the Ideas area.
Thank you also DebDT, I did go to his page and do see the "View Relationship" link, when I clicked it I see that since he is past 15 generations it is not making the connection, I have also noticed this with the Generations / Heritage pages and was hoping this would go past the 8 generations. I can find him in my family tree area but I was hoping to see past the default Generations that are listed.
My Armstrong family tree goes back a long time and I love the idea of finding these extra pages in the Discovery section.
