I want to see deceased people's birthdays on the calendar.

+6 votes
I first want to say that I love the newly added calendar function on this site.  Every addition you make on here makes things better, easier, and more thorough.  I also love the updated icons on the bottom of the screen.

I was wondering about the calendar feature, though.  I noticed that deceased family members' birthdays are not on the calendar.  I would definitely like that added.  Is there any way to make that happen on my end, aside from editing my trees so that everyone is still alive?  Is there a chance that you could add that feature later on?

Thank you in advance for your time with this request and for putting together this amazing site.  I have used it since 2017 and I have 50+ trees on here.  Have a great rest of your day.  Stay safe and healthy.  Merry Christmas.

Also perhaps the death anniversaries of people, and the marriage anniversaries of dead people, but also make it optional

I think this would be a nice addition as well, but would prefer that it be optional. There are times when It might be useful, but also times when it would get in the way. I would suggest, that if it's added, the additional information would be their age when they died.


8th Braydon Knipp – 48th birthday


8th Braydon Knipp Sr. – 78 at death

Baring that, at least a notation that they are deceased.
