Identifying Living People

How does the WikiTree system "know" whether a profile represents a living or non-living person?

This is important because it determines the default privacy level and restricts whether or not the Profile Manager can make the person's profile public.

Here are ways to make it clear that a person is living:

  1. mark the Death Date or Death Location as "still living" and/or
  2. include an e-mail address.

Here are ways to make it clear that a person is non-living:

  1. include a Death Date or Death Location, or
  2. mark the Death Date as "uncertain but non-living".

If it is not clear whether or not a person is living in one of the ways listed above and the Birth Date is less than 100 years ago we assume the person is living.
