Could you check to see if these children are deceased or living?
The father Eugene Yoder GCMP-47M is deceased but the record also lists all of his children as deceased and I think they are still living. Please check for me.
Karen Yoder GCMP-5KG; Linda Yoder GCMP-N5K; Nancy Yoder GCMP-P98; Susan Yoder GCMP-BB5; and Clark Yoder GCMP- G6G. Thank you
When users create records in Family Tree, they determine whether the individuals they have added are living or deceased as they create the records. Unfortunately, many users assume a person is deceased just based upon the fact that they were included in a recent Census such as the 1930 or 1940 Census. This, however, is not the standard used at FamilySearch to determine whether a person is living or deceased. Please review the following knowledge article which explains that if a person was born within the last 110-years, we assume they are living until we find a death record for them. This helps to protect the privacy of individuals who are long-lived.
Please open the details page of each of the records you are concerned about to determine whether there are sources that verify these people are deceased. If you do not see an attached death source, click on the name of the person who contributed these records and ask them through FamilySearch messaging how they know these individuals are deceased. This additional article explains how to message another user.
Finally, if you know someone is living and you have contact information for them or have spoken with them recently, you can attempt to change Deceased to Living. Follow the prompts to fill in the reason statements that will allow you to create a FamilySearch ticket to request a change from deceased to living. The instructions and what to expect are included in the following knowledge article from our Help Center. Please be aware that when a Dead-to-Living ticket is created, it can take some time to have the status changed as the department that handles these tickets is currently backed-up.
Again, to address your original question, FamilySearch does not determine whether a person is living or deceased. Each contributor who works in Family Tree is responsible for verifying whether a person is living or deceased based upon the sources they find and upon our 110-year policy. We hope the information we have provided will be helpful.2
What I usually do is contact the contributor who added the PIDs and ask them if the person is living. If yes, then I ask the contributor to either change Deceased to Living, moving the PIDs into their own private tree space, or delete the PIDs. This works more often than not.0
Also check the sources for Eugene Yoder. Find A Grave often lists other deceased members. As in this case, daughter Linda shows as deceased. Wish you the best!0
