Is it appropriate to use memories to prove connection between both the living and the dead?
Would it be appropriate to use my grandmother’s birth certificate KWZ5-9LD to prove relationship to her parents’ KWCW-8H9 and KWCW-8H7? How would I correctly tag each person in the birth certificate
Can I use my brother’s LJ95-TZDbirth certificate to show his relationship to my mother LJ95-THP even though they are both still living?

Thank you for posting your question in the Community.
We are attaching a link to an article from our Help Center to assist in answering your question. It is titled, "Who can view the items uploaded in Memories for living people?
Part of this article reads, "Before you share any memories about living people, you should understand that all memories—even those with living people in them—are publicly viewable by default and potentially findable:
- They can be shared through linking, social media, and e-mail.
- They can be found through a topic tag search in FamilySearch Memories.
- They may be found using Google and other search engines.
There are also related articles linked to this one that may help you with your decision to add memories to the records of living people. Another important article is, "How do I make a memory private."
In answer to your first question, Yes, it would it be appropriate to use your grandmother’s birth certificate to prove relationship to her parents. The article below will help you with the tagging.
We wish you the best, as you use memories to document relationships and preserve information about your ancestors.0

I would add NO information about the living. Besides a security risk, all information you create or upload regarding living people will be permanently invisible if you die before they do (assuming you are not LDS). When you become deceased, if you have not provided your login and password to anyone, all that information will remain inaccessible permanently. If you are LDS, I believe you will eventually be marked deceased and there is a process whose details remain fuzzy to me.0

this is a discussion of what Gail mentioned about what happens when you die.
I agree that one should use a lot of caution before uploading a document/item that applies to a living person0
