    thanx for sharing this. some interesting info here...got a few of 'this record is officially closed' on family members.
    do you know the reasons for this?

    They are deemed to still be alive so showing details would break data protection laws - they can be opened but you have to prove they have died - FMP will do it for free I think if you provide the details, however as per normal I think Ancestry will charge you to open the record and I still think you need to provide the details

    The above is my vision of that based on what I know - just in case someone else comes along with the real reasons, but its usually about making money and making subscribers correct the errors of the transcrobers employed to do the job.
