Need to Add Parameters to 'Following your Ancestor's Timeline' (sic) for Stillborn babies
John Compton Gee - 1912-1912 (stillborn)
Like Most of us, I clicked on the 'Following your Ancestor's Timeline' to see what ancestor's timeline I was going to see. Unfortunately, as these are computer-generated, there needs to be another change added to this function. My suggestion is that very young babies and/or at the very least, stillborn babies, like my collateral ancestor had no timeline. He was born and died on the same day in 1912 in Wichita, KS. And although he was delivered in Kansas, the family buried him in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin. He was the brother of my beloved grandfather, and obviously the baby was named. My husband and I actually visited the cemetery where some of the family (including this baby) was buried, across country a few years ago. All of our family knew about this baby, John Compton Gee (M713-3LP). It would be more sensitive to customers if you figured out a way to ‘edit’ this helpful timeline function of Finding & Following the Lives of Our Ancestors (who weren’t stillborn). There are actually a lot of them on FamilySearch.
