Ambiguity is subject to penalties with automated mass updates

This tool is selective but not intelligent. It does exactly what it is told to do... even when that is a really bad choice.
Also it does not use the Probably Alive Proxy calculation. It uses the Birth year when filtering Person records.
So the dates of any other items in the Person's timeline (other Events, defining life events of offspring, siblings, or parents) are not considered. You may want to provide some better direction by using the Calculate Estimated Dates Tool addon to estimate a Birth year.]
