Isn't this the same as Your other g2g post

Henry Harrison is brother of Henry Grandison in the current profiles.
Just getting started here.  My intent was to alert profile managers for both Henry and Thomas.

I created a wikitree space page for the Lawrence information, so you could use the sample citation and source information. 

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:The_Lawrence_Family_of_Reynoldsburg_Southern_Illinois

Now, that you changed the father, you need to include the source on the profiles for doing that.  Relationship changes especially need to have sources added to profiles.  

Thanks for the citation/source examples.  To be precise, I did not change the father, rather I created profile Lawrence-14825  and added H. Harrison as son.  Naturally, I referenced my source.  Novice though I am, it appears to me unseemly to edit a profile managed by someone else.

Henry Harrison Lawrence had Thomas Davidson Lawrence as father. You created Henry Gravidson Lawrence as father. Then changed the father of Henry Harrison to Henry Gravidson, which is fine, but you need to make sure the documentation Is included on Henry Harrison, Henry Gravidson, and Thomas Davison's profiles with that source.

You can edit a profile that has a different PM that is open to editing. That is part of the Collaborative part of the site.  When a relationship is being changed, frequently people will message the other person so they are aware of it, as well as Include your source, in case the other person has a different source or reason that they think your source is inaccurate.  Your source is not a primary source, so there could be different sources. When a relationship is changed, which was done when the father was changed, the documentation needs to be included also.
Grandison.  The middle name is Grandison.
