The ordinance information for living people is on that person's membership record. Ordinances for living people are not recorded in the FamilySearch Family Tree until that person is deceased.
Short Answer: You CANNOT - as 'Amy' has advised.
Here is a "Knowledge Article" in 'FamilySearch':
Why are ordinances "Not Available" for living people?
I hope this helps.
It seemed like before the dates were not automatically being added in. Several years ago my Sister in Law was able to request ordinances for my deceased father-in-law and I know he did all his work before he passed. I just looked now and the correct original dates are in there. Is that something got fixed?
The ward membership clerk needs to mark the membership record as deceased. Then the corresponding Family Tree record will show up in the public part of the Tree with the associated ordinances. If the membership clerk doesn't do this, the record won't show up in the Tree. Or if the member was inactive and the ward didn't know the person they may not know they passed away. This happened recently with my neighbor's brother. He had to contact FamilySearch who contacted the Church membership records department. They found the living record and marked him as deceased and within minutes the record was viewable in the Family Tree.
Amy, that raises a question that I've pondered on before.
When a member creates a FS account, the PID that is automatically created in that account is the one that ultimately receives all the ordinance statuses. When the clerk updates the church records showing that person as deceased, that PID in the member's account is marked deceased and then becomes visible to everyone. So far, so good.
But what happens in the case where a member who has had live ordinances has never created a FS account (and hence their "special" PID is not created or not visible in the FSFT). What happens when the clerk marks that person deceased in the church records? Is a new "deceased" PID automatically created for that person? Or has that PID been there from the time that person was originally entered as a member in the church records?
If the latter of these is true, where is that PID record kept until the person gets around to creating a FS account?
Do you have any insights into this?
Jeff, This is from personal experience. When we created my then 8 year old son's FamilySearch login/password (and attached membership record number in the process) in 2018, it opened up what already existed for him - with dates from 2014. So my personal belief is that there is already a membership connect PID for each Church member (at least members that existed in 2014).
My neighbor's brother never had ever accessed FamilySearch, but his membership connected PID showed up in the Tree when the Church marked his membership record as deceased. That PID was created in May 2014. And showed up last month in 2020 and the brother had died in 2019.
Hope this helps.
That confirms my suspicions that all members have an "original" PID. If they are alive and have a FS account, the "Live" PID will be there for them. If they don't have a FS account, then their original "live" PID still exists out of the public eye in some holding account somewhere. When the records are updated upon that person's demise, the PID record will just pop up visible to everyone.
That also would explain why when some members first open a FS account, they get live PID duplicates of any parents or children that are in the records. So the PIDs in this holding state must also already be linked to member parents and member children records.
And since ALL members with records would have original PIDs in existence, that contributes a lot of records to the 1.3 Billion in the FSFT database at the present time. This looks like a really good way to grown the database as new members arrive as well.
The information isn't visible until the FamilySearch is notified that the person is deceased. That doesn't happen until after the ward clerk records the death.
Once FamilySearch is notified, their copy of the person is made visible with all of the ordinance information.
That copy of the person must be merged with all of the others in the system by users of the system.
