Improvement on search function

If a person existed (I will call her Alpha Beta) and is unlisted because she was born 1955 but she has in fact died in 2000, she will show up as unlisted if you search for Alpha Beta born 1955 but not (though she should) if you add died 2000.

This is a flaw in the program which is easily amended.

People with death dates cannot be unlisted.

I'm trying to understand what your improvement request is. Are you saying that people should still show up in the search results if you enter a death date in search, even if their profile doesn't have a death date?
Exactly that. Otherwise a person who knows Profile has died may not be able to find Profile because Wikitree didn’t know about the death.
Got it. I'll add it to the suggested improvements list.
