Message returned when doing an ID FIND
The below message makes no sense to be returned when doing an ID lookup in FamilyTree
A more appropriate message might include the point that you cannot do a FIND for an ID of a living person entered by someone else.

Surely that would mean a change of coding in order that FIND can identify the status of the ID - either Living or Deceased? Presumably it currently only looks for an exact match amongst "Deceased" IDs, so is not programmed to differentiate between typing errors, IDs from previous FamilySearch programs, or those assigned to the living.
Perhaps an extra piece of code (so FIND "knows" - and can advise - why no result(s) are being returned) is exactly what you are requesting.0
Its generic message now. "Sometimes in life . . . "
Im not asking to add any intelligence
other than the fact that if you are doing an ID search the generic message should be different.
whether the ID is living or deceased - the generic message should give some ideas as to why an ID search might not find anything (even if the ID was valid - but for a living person)
where as now the generic message only makes sense if you are doing a name search (not an ID search)0
