6 May 1895 – 8 October 1953
This person is deceased. He was born in the 1800's and yet the system shows the Confidential header and I cannot do his work . Why?
The following article from the FamilySearch Help Centre will help you understand this better:
I will send you a private message to assist you further with this.
You have asked why a record might be marked as "Confidential" in the Family Tree program, and there can be a variety of reasons why this happens.
In Family Tree, data administrators occasionally set a deceased person's record to confidential. The record then moves to the contributor's private space and is visible only to the user who added it. In Family Tree, you can identify a confidential person because the yellow banner contains the heading "Confidential Person."
Administrators mark records as confidential if the ability for the public to view the information could harm the contributor. We do not accept user requests to mark records as confidential.
If you want to know more about the confidential G895-5PC record please respond to the personal message that was sent to you by @Colin Ramsbottom who communicated with you yesterday. You marked his message as a rejected message which allows your question to remain Unanswered in the Community setting.
We wish you success as we try to gather the information that is needed to forward your concern to the appropriate specialty team regarding your concern about your ancestor's Confidential record. Since you have asked specifically about your desire to do Temple work for your ancestor, we are moving this discussion to the Temple Category. It will show as Closed in Family Tree after the move, but will remain open in the Temple Category.
Your question will be forwarded to a specialty team for review and resolution. You may be contacted by that team if they need to gather more information.
Please look for a red dot near the envelop at the right top of this page for an answer to your question. Thank you
