Problem with living relatives
I have encountered an issue where one of my cousins is listed as deceased, however there is no date of death given. I have not had contact with my cousin in years so I don't know if she is living or not. I can't find a date of death, so she very well may be living still. But someone has entered her as "deceased"...no date. I see this as a problem because this happened to my own profile also and I am living. Someone entered that I was deceased and I'm very much alive. I tried messaging the person who changed it and they didn't answer, so I had to contact Family Search to get it changed. The problem with people just putting "deceased" and no date, it makes that person's profile public. If you are living you may not want your profile to be viewed in detail. If you are listed as "living" I was told that your profile is private. I suggest that a death date field must be mandatory for entry, otherwise that profile must be listed as living...until a date of death can be verified with a source, and enter the source.
