Welcome to WikiTree and G2G, Hamish.

Just click (on your father's profile page) in the link that says "adopt this profile" at the right side of "No Profile Manager" and instantly you'll become the profile's Profile Manager.

If he has no profile manager and his profile is open (white lock) or public (green lock) then you can "adopt" him (WikiTree's word for becoming his profile manager).  You should see a link next to where it says "No profile manager" that you can click to "adopt this profile".

If his profile is private (red, yellow or orange lock) then you need to write to and tell them this is your father's profile and you want to adopt it - they'll take care of it for you.

When you are the manager, you will be able to connect him as your father.  You will also be able to change the privacy level if you wish.

If he has a profile but no manager you can adopt it, if the profile is open If not email info @ wikitree . com (without the spaces) and explain the situation.
