I am looking for help on how to change the last name at birth from “unknown” to the last name at birth.

I suggest that an appropriate entry be placed under the “U” in the Help Index.

Unknown ==> Bockholt

Don't use the index itself.  It makes things more complicated than difficult LOL.  Use the little search box top right.

If you look under 'LNAB', it sends you to 'Name Fields', under which there is 'last name at birth (LNAB), correcting'...

Help:Correcting a Last Name at Birth

Since you answered yourself...

It doesn't matter whether you are changing an Unknown to a DecentName, or a Smith to a Jones, or whatever.  The rule is the same: you have to be either the PM or on the Trusted List in order to be able to do it.
Pay it forward, right?

So, I need to email the profile manager that the person’s last name has been identified. One less unknown for WikiTree and Find a Grave.
Profile Manager didn’t respond to changing unknown last name to known lastname. What is the next step to get this corrected?
Profile Manager hasn't been on WT since December last year.

Your next step is to go through the Unresponsive Profile Manager process.  Go to Marlus Buch's profile on the Family Tree & Tools tab and scroll right to the very bottom, where there is a link.  It will tell you what you need to do.
