Why is someone who is clearly deceased being listed as living?
Rupert Lionel Thewlis Johnson
March 1914 – 10 November 1942
All sources for birth/death/probate are in place but he has come up as 'living' instead of deceased
We do see the record of Rupert Lionel Thewlis Johnson G82K-486. When we search in Family Tree with that ID number, we get no results, and this would indicate that this record is considered a Confidential record.
If you see that record and there is a death date, the record may have a Read Only or a Confidential banner at the top of the page. We will forward your concern about this record to a specialty team who might be able to give you additional information about the record. You might also want to read the following knowledge article that discusses Read only records
If you see a Confidential banner it is because you are related to that individual. In some instances Confidential records may be made available to the public in the future as described in this additional article.
Once we have forwarded your concern, you will be contacted by the specialty team that will review and resolve your concern. Because this is a concern about a record in Family Tree, we are moving the discussion to the Family Tree Help Center category. Don't be alarmed when it shows as closed in the FamilySearch Community category.
