While creating a profile, how can I be sure a relative is not one of many "Living Person"s who comes up with no details?

I am creating a profile for my uncle but I get the message "If any of the following appear to be a match, do not proceed".  The list has several Living persons with no details to evaluate.  I know the exact birth date, middle name & more about my uncle but that is not included in this search to help determine if a Living person is a match.  Can I eliminate more matches by increasing the details from my new profile?

Have you messaged the profile managers to ask?

Yes I have.  So far I have 2 answers out of 6 managers.  I can wait for more responses but with a closer match to more details it would not be necessary to bother anyone at all.

If your grandparents' profiles, his parents, don't show any private children, then it's unlikely that he has a profile.  Just check to make sure your grandparents' profiles aren't duplicates.

Thanks, this seems like a good way to proceed.  I created my parents & grandparents profiles after checking for duplicates but when creating my uncles I got the "Living …" with only the birth decade to go on.
