Welcome to WikiTree, the worldwide family tree.  Thanks for joining us, Dawn!
Is the problem that you skipped a generation?

If so, you can detach the incorrect connection to insert the correct person.

If you need help, we may need to know the specific profiles involved.

Without more info it is hard to know for certain what you are trying to do.

Each person is to have one profile only. Adding someone new does not cause someone else to be deleted. That being said please do not add duplicate profiles of someone already on Wikitree, rather connect them to their family.

It's in my tree that I'm messing with. As I was putting in my family I missed a person.
Ok in my tree there is john james Poteet 1743 - 1786 his father is William George Poteet 1713 -1741
 I missed putting him in my tree in stand I put his father I'm which is john p Poteet 1692 - 1721. 
I just need to know how I can fix it in my tree?
Ok so you need to go into the edit page of John James, down the right hand side 
it will have his father and under that it says ‘replace/remove father’ 
you click that and then enter the details of the correct father. 
Don’t forget to save your work.

You do not need to delete anyone from your tree when adding a new person. Simply click on one of his parents and on the Edit Page, click Add Child. A form will come up for his information and, once completed, he will be included in his family in the appropriate place. be sure to add birth/death dates and relevant sources.
