If I connect her to Gus, will that make it difficult for viewers since she and their children are alive?

I am assuming you would set the privacy as red. It would be the safest choice without having their permission.

It would show her/them as "private wife", "private son", "private daughter", etc. It won't obstruct anything already there. It may require that the profile be set to green privacy, but I would need to take a closer look at the guidelines to be sure.

It would show that the information has been researched, perhaps saving time for those down the road. As well as that relationships do exist, more information than is currently represented.

Thanks! I went ahead and connected her. Funny, it doesn't show up at all on Gus' page. Only the "spouse unknown" is gone.
Oops! All the images are now hidden. Not what I wanted to happen. His privacy is yellow and hers is red.
I think Virgil can be set back to green privacy and it will restore the pictures. He was set to yellow when the living family were added as a default setting. As most of his info is in the public already, green should be OK.
OK, great, thanks! Can someone change the privacy setting, as I don't have rights?
