Does Roots Magic, Ancestry, or other programs sync with anything you put in to Family Search? Do you need to individually input each living person? I am curious as to what other do for this?
Margaret, in reviewing your question again, we do not know if you have been successful.
We have attached a URL listed below that may give you additional assistance with your excellent question about ' Keeping track of Living people '.
Thank you for the work your are doing with your living relatives and we wish you much success.
Welcome to the FamilySearch community. Thank you for the time you spend asking questions
Patrons add a living Family member one at the time. FamilySearch is extremely careful in protecting the privacy of Living Family Members.
Family Tree allows you to build out and populate your family tree in a variety of different ways that you will quickly become more familiar with as you work to fill in information about your family. In the meantime, start with who you know, such as a spouse, parents, or grandparents. Depending on individual circumstances, it may be helpful to contact close relatives for any missing details you may come across.
The more generations you add, the easier it will be for Family Tree to link you to matching ancestors that may already exist in the system or to provide you with record hints for those yet to be added.
Since FamilySearch is a public, highly collaborative genealogical site, know that the records for living people are stored in your private space and that not all of their information will be searchable or viewable to other users.
You can view Family Tree in a few different ways, meaning there are a few different ways to add in family members.
What is a private space in Family Tree?
How do I add living relatives to a person in Family Tree?
How do I add an unconnected person to Family Tree?
How do I add an ancestor who is already in Family Tree to my pedigree?
Thank you for the work you are doing in Family Tree and we wish you much success.

Again that you for that excellent question and we do hope you feel comfortable completing your Family Tree.
Thanks for this information. I was however wondering how to keep track of living people OUTSIDE of Family Search. I was hoping for others on this platform who have opinions to share those.
Thank you for that question regarding ' how to keep track of Living Relatives outside FamilySearch'.
Most patrons use a third party program like Roots Magic, however we do not know if you are already using that software program. There are many other programs out there that accomplish the same tasks. We mentioned Roots Magic as you mentioned that in your original question. Ancestry is not a free website, or My Heritage all have a yearly fee to use their program.
