Continue parent-child relationships upon death.
When one person of a parent-child relationship who is living, dies and the death is entered into FamilySearch tree, the relationship is broken. The entering patron may still see the relationship, but the relationship is not shown on the public tree, thus misleading the entering patron to believe all is well. The relationship, now between two deceased persons, needs to survive the transition.
It sounds like you are referring to the relationship when death of a younger generation precedes their parent. For example, if a grandparent and grandchild are both deceased but the grandchild's parent is still living. Because of protection of living persons - you are right - each person knowing/wishing to see that relationship will need to add a placeholder/bridge living profile to represent that living person - and attaching those relationships will allow that individual user see them. But because of protection for living person profiles - this cannot be done once so that all users would see that publicly.0
If the entering patron can still see the relationship, then it means that the relationship is still present and should be visible when all people in the relationship are deceased.
If you have an example of where this did not happen, you will need to post that particular example so the engineers can see what went wrong and fixed the bug.0
I have given Ron Tanner specific information with IDs. When a parent-child relationship is added and one or both of the two are living, only the entering patron sees it as expected. When either dies, same result, the patron sees it but not the public. When they are both deceased, SAME result. Only the entering patron sees it until the relationship is re-entered, which should not be necessary. Because the entering patron never sees the problem, they don't know to re-enter the relationship.0
So, you are telling me that the private parent-child relationship does not become public when all persons in the relationship become public?0
Yes. I have three specific cases. In two, the children died soon after birth some 50 years ago and both were entered as deceased about 2 years ago. The parents were still living and entered about the same time, along with two other children born later. Next, the father died some 13 months ago and the death recorded and he appeared in the public space, but without children. The relationship between the now deceased father and the two deceased children did not show to the public, but did to me as the entering patron. Almost 2 months ago, one of the two other children died. Now she and her father were both deceased and appeared in the public space but were not related. The parent child relationship was not visible to others, only to me as entering patron. I had NO knowledge of the problem until a helping missionary pointed it out. I had to re-enter the father-daughter relationship between the two deceased persons in order for others to see it.
At the moment, I am waiting for a response from Ron Tanner as to what we patrons need to do, if anything, about this issue.1
