Show generic living offspring?
I note on Ancestry.com I can see living offspring with a "private" flag. Presumably if Ancestry is doing this then they have figured out all the privacy issues and it could be done here too?
I do not see that capability on Family Search. I have been trying to check if any of my deceased distant relatives (third cousins once returned) have living offspring. I understand that I won't be able to see details, but right now I don't even know if the family line terminated there or not.
There might also be a case where a grandparent or even a great-grandparent outlives their child. Wouldn't this make it impossible to see the younger part of the tree with the deceased person unless somebody set that deceased person and any others connected to them as an unconnected person? I do know of a case where the parents are still alive but a son is deceased. I could set up a lineage that only I could see but frankly I consider this a waste of time. Situation: "Yes, this dead grandparent who you can see had a daughter who is still living so you can't see her, but she had a son who is deceased and here's his details that everybody can see. He has 3 living siblings but that's all we can show you about them."
