Melanie - you say you see it [the adopt profile link] in Nelson Hovey Dodge's profile?  I wonder why you can see it, but I cannot.  Some access or trust level issue?

I see it also ...

Try volunteering, if you haven't already.  If you still don't see the link, I could adopt it for you, then you could apply to the Trusted List, and we could go from there.
Melanie - I am new to WikiTree.  How do I volunteer?  It would be great if you might adopt it for me if volunteering doesn't work.  Thanks!!!!

D'you know -- I don't have a clue if it's even needed since the membership changed a little while back.  I'll go ahead and adopt it, then you can apply to the Trusted List.

edited to add -- just go to the Privacy tab, scroll down and click to apply.

Lowell, you have signed the Honor Code, so you should be able to adopt the profile.

For the others that want to know about the new membership levels: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:Membership

Family member: edit the 'genealogist section' of your profile. HC signing has stayed the same (as far as I know).

Hi Lowell, and welcome to the WikiTree community. You volunteered when you upgraded to Family Member and signed the Honor code.

Go to the profile of Nelson Hovey Dodge and click the privacy tab and scoll down to where it says "Click here to request to join the Trusted List. An e-mail will be sent to the Profile Manager and you will be informed if you are approved.
