My id is (removed for privacy). My name has been added as a child under my parents (names removed for privacy) possibly by someone doing indexing, as a deceased person with the id of (removed for privacy.)
How does one delete this addition?
Ideally, this should have been reported privately, as your personal details are currently avaiable to be viewed by the public.
Firstly, I would attempt to change the "Deceased" status to "Living", although I believe a FamilySearch employee will need to verify this. (Hopefully, one will read your comments and explain the exact procedure).
Secondly, I would immediately contact the person whose name appears against the entries (via the Family Tree internal messaging system) and query their work, especially in adding you to Family Tree as a deceased person.
This issue should be dealt with as a matter of urgency.
Update - I have just found this article that deals with the problem:
Welcome to the "Community.FamilySearch" Forum.
I am just another 'lowly' User/Patron ...
Just a suggestion ...
IF, your are certain that "James Andrew COLBOURNE" ( 06 Apr 1950, Bideford Devon - Deceased ) being 'FamilySearch Person Identifier': GCNL-WXY; where, the "Gender" is "Unknown"; THEN, simply, select the "Edit" alongside "Death"; and, "Change" the 'Status' to "Living"; plus "Add" a "Reason This Information Is Correct" to the effect that "This individual/person is ME; and, I am STILL "Living"; and, "Save".
Doing the aforementioned SHOULD automatically create a Case to be generated that 'FamilySearch' "Support" MUST investigate; and, ACTION, if appropriate.
Provided, 'FamilySearch' "Support" agrees with you, 'FamilySearch' "Support" then WILL "Change" the 'Status', from "Living", to "Deceased"; and, once that is ACTIONED, the NEWLY "Living" individual/person will appear in the "Private Spaces" of the User/Patron who created him (ie. the "Duplicate" You), disappearing from the 'view' of ALL Other Users/Patrons, including yourself.
Here is a "Knowledge Article" in 'FamilySearch':
I hope this helps.
As mentioned by Paul W and Brett, you need to follow the instructions in the knowledge article entitled "How do I change the status from deceased to living in Family Tree?"
A request now goes to FamilySearch Support. A system administrator reviews your request and takes appropriate actions.
We hope that you are able to get this issue resolved quickly.
