Uploaded Picture deemed 'inappropriate'.
My Oncle was a Pilot in the German Luftwaffe during world war 2. I wanted to upload a picture documenting circumstances of his death in action ( that I found on the Internet). This picture contains a reference to a military medal (German) awarded to him. How can this be considered as inappropriate ?. This is the only record I found and I would really like it to be available ,for reference , to my descendants .
Your question about uploading photo from your uncle.
These are the guidelines from FamilySearch.
https://www.familysearch.org/help/helpcenter/article/what-rules-apply-to-uploading-memories-to-familysearch-org Have you uploaded the photo already and was it rejected?
Tagging it with a name of your uncle and his identification number would be very helpful.
Thank you for uploading photos from your close relatives, we wish you much success.0
FamilySearch uses software to review each memory item that is uploaded to ensure that it complies with our rules and guidelines.
Here is what happens when a memory item appears to violate the rules and guidelines:
- FamilySearch flags the item with a banner and the word "Restricted."
- You receive an email notification.
- The flagged memory item remains in your Memories gallery for 30 days.
Review the email and respond if you feel the memory item should not be restricted.1
Another alternative could be to create a source with a website link.0
Hello @olivier de Ipanema Moreira
As @DebDT commented, if a memory item is marked as restricted, your first and best option to deal with that is to respond to the email you received and ask for a second review, explaining your reasons why the image should not be restricted.2
