Can I add memories about my living relatives to Family Tree?

Family Tree allows you to add memories about living relatives. Before you do this, remember that all memories are publicly viewable, including those attached to living people. They can be shared through linking, social media, and e-mail. They can be found through a topic tag search and may be findable in more ways in the future.

Please do not submit photographs of living except your own minor children, without their consent. Please see our Submission Agreement for more information.

If you find a memory about yourself or another living person that should not be on FamilySearch, you can request that it be removed. There are two ways to do this:

  • Click the contributor's name, and send him or her a message that requests the removal.
  • Open the memory, and click Report Abuse. Fill in the needed information, and click Submit.
