Someone made a new person for me on family search from my mother's obituary that says I am deceased. I can't merge it because I am still living.
My ID is KWC8-fn1. The new person's ID is GZCY-BT1.
As we understand and have observed there are two records for you in Family Tree, 1) ID# GZCY-BT1 who is shown as deceased and 2) ID# KWC8-FN1 as living. As you are a living individual and you have added yourself to Family Tree, we cannot your ID# as it is entered in your Private Spaces.
FamilySearch will need to delete this deceased individual from Family Tree. You cannot do it because it was added by someone else.
We will move question to a specialty team for review and resolution. You may be contacted by that team if they need to gather more information.
You may also want to contact the person who created your deceased individual so they do not create the record again. They cannot see you either due to Private Spaces.
Welcome to the "Community.FamilySearch" Forum
I am just another 'lowly' User/Patron ...
as an aside ...
[ As, this matter is now with 'FamilySearch' "Support" ... ]
Regarding the "Deceased" DUPLICATE of the "Living" You, [ ie. "Brad THORNLEY" ( GZCY-BT1 ) ] ...
Question: Had to tried to "Change" the 'Status', from "Deceased", to "Living"?
There have been some recent changes to 'FamilySearch' "Support"; and, I have NOT tried since those recent changes.
That Said ...
It used to be, a simple matter, of going into the "Death Record", for the particular individual/person concerned (ie. in this case that of, GZCY-BT1); and, "Changing" the 'Staus', from "Deceased", to "Living".
When one did such, the following happened; and, occurred:
(1) One had to provide a "Reason This Information Is Correct"
(2) When one "Saved", you were advised that a 'FamilySearch' "Support" Case was submitted/created; and, the matter would be investigated.
(3) There was NO immediate "Change"; but, in fact, the matter is PENDING, subject to further investigation
(4) 'FamilySearch' "Support" would investigate, where there were two (x2) possible outcomes:
.... (a) 'FamilySearch' "Support" agrees with you, where the 'Status' is "Changed" to "Living".
And, IF, that is the case; THEN, the DUPLICATE then disappears for "Public" view, into the "Private Spaces" of the User/Patron who created the record.
.... (b) 'FamilySearch' "Support" disagrees with you (which I doubt0 - the 'Status' remains a "Deceased".
As, this matter is now with 'FamilySearch' "Support" ...
What I have suggested, could be used, in future, if you ever come across, a "Deceased" individual/person, who you KNOW is STILL "Living".
Here is a "knowledge Article" in 'FamilySearch':
How do I change the status from deceased to living in Family Tree?
I hope this helps.
