How to Resolve Duplicate Living Profiles for Someone Who Has Died
It is a fact that in the shared family tree there are many duplicate living profiles. When they die, how do we consolidate all their duplicate profiles since you can't merge a living profile with a deceased profile, or even see the the living profile if you didn't create the profile. Given that the system administrator can send all of us messages, let's take advantage of that capability. That is, when I change a living profile to deceased, the system could: 1) use the profile information to identify possible living duplicates, and 2) send a message to the "creators" that this person may now be deceased and show the unique identifier of the deceased person. With this system "heads up", each creator may change their living profile to deceased and do a merger of the deceased profiles. An added advantage of this approach is letting others make a correction if the person has in fact not died.
