Welcome to the "Community.FamilySearch" Forum
I am just another 'lowly' User/Patron ...
I am a little confused ...
Are you referring to, not 'seeing' yourself, in the Principal position, in the "Pedigree" View?
By Chance, have you "Changed", the Family Tree Starting Person, in your "Settings", in 'FamilySearch'
ie. Settings ---> (FIRST, Default) Account 'Tab' ---> (Down bottom) "Family Tree Preferences"
Family Tree Starting Person
The default person that appears at the root of your Family Tree.
I get this message when trying to change a family member from living to deceased
'Yes', that definitely appears to be YOU.
Lets see ...
First thing ...
Go to the "ChangeLog" [ ie. https://www.familysearch.org/tree/person/changelog/[PID] ]
You can get there by either,
(1) Using that URL, with the 'FamilySearch Person Identifier' (PID) at the end; or,
(2) Go to "Latest Changes", down to the bottom of that Section; and, select "Show ALL"
When you are in the "ChangeLog", go right down to the bottom.
You are 'looking' for, "Vital Added"; and, that being the FIRST time that the 'Vital' of "Name" appears.
Question: WHO is that "Name"? ... Is that YOU?
IF, that is NOT You; THEN, WHO is it?
IF, it is you; THEN, at some stage, you must have "Change" the "Name", to the OTHER individual/person?
IF, it is NOT You; THEN, are you using ANOTHER User's/Patron's 'FamilySearch' Account (eg. Family member)?
Great work Juanita,
Again, welcome to FamilySearch Community.
If you have need of quick answers again, always remember, the quickest way is the (?) in the upper right corner.
WHY do "Moderators", ADD a 'Comment'; and, then, mark their 'Comment'; as, an "Accepted Answer".
That should NOT be, done; or, allowed, under any circumstances.
