In this Addition, we will discuss about Delete A Person From Family Tree in FamilySearch. If you need any help, you can call us at our Family Tree Maker Support Number +1-888-257-3335. You can delete the record of a person on the FamilySearch Family Tree which you have created. It can only be possible if the record has not been changed by any other contributor. If you get the message saying, “Delete Person Unavailable”, it simply means that you cannot delete a person. You can delete a living person’s record from your private spaces.
Deleting a record, whether for a living or dead, may result in changes in the Family Tree –
When you delete a person – living or dead – it removes any relationships to other individuals on the Family Tree.
When you delete the record, it can never be modified.
Record Search –
Once you delete the record of the individual(s), you can find them only through their ID number.
Records Restore –
There is a process of recovering or restoring records once deleted from the Family Search Family Tree. There are ways to restore deleted records through the Latest Changes feature. We will discuss how to restore records in a separate blog.
