- What Happens to Your FamilySearch Memories When You Die? – James Tanner (13 Aug 2023)
The simple answer to the question in the title of this video is that memories contributed to FamilySearch remain on FamilySearch after the contributor dies. When a FamilySearch user passes away, if FamilySearch knows about the death, the system locks the account. All memories contributed by that user remain in our database, though they may be easily found. However, that is only the tip of the iceberg of what you need to know about this subject. This video goes into a more complete explanation of the process and all the related issues.
