I misspelled a family name. I followed the instructions to correct that. After accessing that persons vital info, I get stuck and cannot move further. Please advise
@Tyrone734 If you're new to the FamilySearch tree, it can be a little overwhelming.
There are many help articles with step-by-step instructions. If you want someone to walk you through it, please supply the profile ID, and we'll be glad to try. The PID will be near the name of the person. For example, here's the PID of one of my ancestors.
If you click on the PID with your mouse, it will copy automatically, so you can just paste it in your reply.
Two persons needed name corrections OLSEN GLWM-ZK1 and Bent SOREMNSEN GLW9-H69
Please guide me . Thanks Tyrone734
@Tyrone734 Are you trying to edit the profiles of living persons? Both of those PIDs return a "No Results Found" message. That either means that you are working on living people that no one else can see or you have miscopied the profile IDs.
The profiles of living people can only be viewed by the person who created the profile in order to protect the privacy of the living.
Áine. Both are living persons. Before changing gears and deleting these persons and re-entering them, I will call the "help" contact and seek their assistance.
Tyrone 734 . I finally figured it out. Once I accessed Vitals, I was able to click on the edit tool and correct person name. Thanks for your efforts. This inquiry can be closed.
Tyrone, if they're living and you can see them, that means two things: (1) that you entered them, and (2) that nobody else can see them (except for particular accounts under special circumstances, such as when you contact Support or authorize a helper).
Given (2), it doesn't actually matter what the profiles say, but it should be pretty easy to correct the names. That part works the same way whether the profile is marked living or deceased: click the pencil, make the edits, click Save. Where does the process break for you?
