No

Even if persons which are still alive, in the list the are display a deat. This is a very bad situation, if people are searching in the Internet for their name and find themself as death.
I didn't check this before, and now I get some trouble and had to close this side in the moment.

    What do you have set as "Age at which to assume a person is dead " - it might be too low, which would cause a living person older than that to be listed as 'dead'. (setting in Privacy config). The default is 120 yrs, which is generally "safe".

    Also, do you have "Show estimated dates for birth and death" set to "Yes" (Setting in Gedcom config / Display & Layout / Hide & Show).

    This is not normal behaviour.

    Can you post the URL of your website so we can look?

    Have you marked these people with a DEAT Y (Ja) ?
    None of them have any dates from which the system can calculate an age to compare them against the 120 years for assumed death. There is a sophisticated algorithm for which examines relatives (GP, Parents, siblings, spouses) for dates if none are noted for an INDI, but if you provide absolutely no dates, the system will be confused. Still, it would appear you have somehow marked these records a DEAD, either during import (is DEAD function) or you have a DEAT tag with or without a Y.

    Since we can't see the code (or even access the site) we'd have little to no way to know what you've done.
