How to adopt a proflie that is not Public? [closed]

+2 votes
Hi friends;

I would like to adopt this profile (Dawson-345) but it won't allow me because it is not public. The individual is dead, so it should be made public, but it's an orphan profile so ... well I don't know what to do. Is there some way to override this restriction so that I can adopt it?

Write to the team at and explain the situation and your interest in this profile. Only a team member can fix this kind of situation.

Note that WikiTree does not make profiles of all dead people public. People who were born less than 150 years ago or died less than 100 years ago can have private profiles.
