Death certificate with true or false written next to persons name?

Death certificate with true or false written next to persons name?

What does it mean when the word false is written next to the deceased persons name? The deceased name is correct, the parents names are correct, the husband is correct so why would it say false?

I have this same experience. So far I have noticed this addition of false or true names only on North Carolina's death certificates. Ancestry has not provided any supporting documents to confirm why they determined the name on or not on the death certificate is false or true. Ironically, the citation sources are ancestry records or personal records which confirm the name shown as a false name is actually a true name. I reported this via phone regarding search and records. Hopefully Ancestry will drop this information from their death certificate citation source.

Is that on the death certificate itself or is it on the ancestry record/transcription?

It's not on the death certificate. This info is on the ancestry transcription record.

Something is happening when it is being placed as a source on the profile (these images are source listings on the profile pages). When I bring up the record via a search, there is nothing on it or the transcription that says false.

Exactly and I wonder why. This action appears to imply that the person on the death certificate is not the person in my tree. Currently my tree is private. Once my tree is public anyone that views the death certificate from the profile page will think the info is incorrect. What concerns me is how the false or true name was added to so many members of one family.

Why does Ancestry continue to offer death certificates in their data base with”False Names”? If the names on the death certificates are false why not return them to the States and request they provide accurate information; or on your end remove them from your data base due to false information. I consider this act deceptive.

Some type of programming error on Ancestry's part. It does not mean that the info on the cert is false.
