Ancestry displays people who are identified as living as "Private". It works quite well, it works selectively on people who are actually living, and it works for everyone except me.
After observing that my living relatives are displaying by name and birth date at Ancestry, I marked the entire database living as false, then individually marked the living people as living. That is exactly what the question database says to do.
Then I uploaded my tree to Ancestry. On my view, everyone still dispalyed, but two of the living people were marked living. I had someone else check my tree, and she saw all my relatives identified as living except the two I saw marked living.
I deleted the tree, went into the database, got into each living person, unchecked and rechecked living and clicked save, exported my people an duploaded it to ancestry - and nothing whatever changed.
How do I identify the living people as living?
I hardly want every ancestor without a death date or with no death or birth dates identified as living.
