I'm not really sure of the question. Is it; can my two sons have a FamilySearch.org account, using my email address?
I called FamilySearch Support @ 866-406-1830 to find the answer. I checked the Help Center (the ?Question mark on the upper right of the page).
FamilySearch Support said it is recommended that each child have their own email. Often a child has an email from school, or a google free email account.
Here is a bit from the Help Center article: To provide parental consent by email, follow these steps.
Here is the link to that article: https://www.familysearch.org/help/helpcenter/article/how-do-i-create-a-free-account-for-a-child
Hope this helps.

Our youngest Child is using the same "E-Mail" Address of her Mother.
That said ...
If they (your Sons) are (each) using an 'Alias' Address that is part of a 'Single' (Family) "E-Mail" Address it works.
I hope this helps.
thank you, I am not sure what Connected Accounts
are? Does anyone know?
The "Connected Accounts" in one's "Settings" are OTHER Programmes that you have connected/link to, work with, "FamilySearch".
I have a number of "Connected Accounts"; but, there are in fact many ...
Just some include that one can connect include (but, not limited to):
"Relative Finder" ( BYU )
"Virtual Pedigree" ( BYU )
There are no connected accounts in FamilySearch.org.
The email that is provided by the user during registration in the email field is used for account verification (and, for a child, the parent's email or mobile phone is requested in addition to grant parental permission). The email address that is used during registration for account activation (or verified later by updating it in the account settings) is also verified for account recovery (user forgot the username or password). However, an email address cannot be used to sign in to an account unless it is selected by the registrant during registration as the username. In that scenario, that email address is only accepted as the username for that one user's account because the same username is not allowed to be used in more than one account. When a user registers a new account with the email address as his or her username, FamilySearch does not even recognize it as an email address--only as a username. The main reason that we recommend not using the same email address in multiple accounts is that, during a "forgot password" or "forgot username" account recovery exercise, the usernames of all accounts containing that email address will be returned in the email along with a password reset link for each account that shares that email address. That is a security issue as it allows the email recipient access to all accounts containing that email address. Most users also do not use their email address as their username as it confuses them during account recovery when they see the email address shown as both their username and their email address in the email for resetting the password. Then they don't know which one to click on to reset the password.
Finally, many children have school email addresses but the school blocks the FamilySearch verification email. In that case, the parent may need to help the child set up an account in one of the free email services in order to manage the child's account recovery separately.
