What happens to my Memories, Photos, etc., that I've recorded in my familysearch account, after I die? Where do my photos etc. go? Will my children be able to access my account?
When a user passes away, if FamilySearch knows about the death, the system locks the account. All Memories items that the individual contributed remain in our Family Tree database.
This is also true of tags. Others can still see these tagged items but cannot edit them.
If the user has added private memories, those memories are not made public. The system is set to keep private any memories designated by a contributor as private. What happens to memories submitted by a deceased user?
I have several multi page record documents, i.e. probate records, German marriage permission documents, etc. that I would like to save to my gallery in memories. I don't want to take up 30 or 40 individual document memories for each memory. I would like to combine these multi document files into only one memory and be able to select that one memory page and proceed through the remaining pages. I believe I have seen this done before but don't know how it was done. Am I explaining myself so you understand what I am trying to say? My name is Michael D. Scheier, at [email protected], 928-751-0119. Thanks so much for your help!
This is a follow up question on the same topic: I'm trying to encourage others to post memories, stories, pictures etc. in familysearch. How can these be preserved for future generations if they are locked away? Is there another way for children to access their parents stories after they've passed on?
