Hi Jackie and welcome.  For clarification are you talking about the trusted list of one particular profile or something different?
You can edit any profile that has the Edit button on it.  It would be preferred to add Sources with anything being edited.  If you are going to make relationship changes, it can be advisable to send a message to the PM unless you have clear sources stating the relationship.  

For profiles that are Project Protected, you have to be a little more cautious about what types of editing are being done, but you can also leave a comment on the profile mentioning the source and information that you want to add. You cannot add  or change Relationships on Project Protected profiles, but you can leave a comment on the profile with the information.

Thank you for your contributions to genealogy!

To get on the trusted list, go to the profile in which you'd like to have edit privileges, scroll down to the box with an orange outline where you'll see the words "If you're a family member request to join the trusted list." Part of this sentence is a hotlink that will send your request to the profile owner. If they own multiple profiles for a family, they can add you to all of them.

Other "open" profiles can be improved at will, it's only the controlled/private ones that you need to be part of the trusted list.

Thanks for joining!
