WikiTree profile: Conrad Reel

I added the find a grave citation to the profile, as well as dates and location found, so there is more information of the profile to link him to relatives.
I have now added quite a few sources for Conrad and his children.  There are many sources on family search for John and his wife Bessie and their children
Thank you Linda!
my john reel was married to sarah jackson, not bessie. so this is not the right john for my tree.
Deb, your ancestor is John Real-278 married to Sarah Jackson-20384.  They are currently connected to your family.

Hey Deb,

At Wikitree we do not remove profiles. The profile you mentioned is unsourced, but does have an image of a gravestone, so it does reflect somebody and he is linked to other people.

Wikitree is also not finding any relationship between you and him. So maybe I am misunderstanding, but why should this profile be removed? Or unlinked to you?

It needs unlinked to me. we are not related.
Where is the relationships "broken"? At what point does the line "break"?
Deb, in the view of Wikitree we are all connected. So if you are looking at connections, then you will get the number of steps.

If you are talking blood-related, then it really depends on the proof and sources. As Jilliane says, you need to see where the wrong connection is and give evidence that it is indeed wrong.

If you have connected the wrong profile yourself, you will be able to remove the connection again.

Maybe you don't wish to be Profile Manager of Conrad and his family any longer.  In which case, you go to the Privacy tab on each profile and scroll down until you see the large dark green button 'Remove Yourself' and then click it.

Some of the difficulty lays in the fact that Deb is PM of the John REEL (c1871-1963) whereas there is a different PM for the two children (Helen and Emerson) credited to John REEL and the info on the father of Helen and Emerson is that John was the son of Conrad Reel (1830–1892) | Person | Family Tree | FamilySearch BUT with different dates -- John Reel (1871–1958) | Person | Family Tree | FamilySearch -- and married to the same woman as Deb says Bessie Elizabeth Van Horn (1880–1938) | Person | Family Tree | FamilySearch

Who is supposed to detach John Reel, or his father Conrad or John's two children? 

Is it Deb listed as PM for Conrad and John -- or the other PM who manages the two children ?

 Deb has all that evidence on John Reel (c1871-1963) and census all consistent with the DOD she uses

my John Reel was not married to Bessie. He was married to Sarah Jackson
how do i detach?
Deb, Relationship Finder doesn't show that there is a relationship to Conrad Reel-286, so if you don't want to continue being the PM on that profile, go to Privacy Tab and select the button Remove Yourself.  That way that profile won't show in your Watch List.  Not sure if that is what you mean about your Tree, because the Watchlist is profiles that you are on Trusted List for or those that you are PM for.
You are PM of John Reel-285.  The sources in that profile state that his parents are the people connected to that profile, so if that is not the John Reel that you are connected to and you don't want to be the PM of that profile, you can just remove yourself from that profile.

You have to remember that there are normally multiple people with the same name, but a spouse, parents, children could be different.  That is why this is a big puzzle that we are all trying to put together.  

You might have to find your own sources for the other John Reel and add him, sources and relatives.
Deb, your ancestor is John Real-278 married to Sarah Jackson-20384.  They are currently connected to your family.

Deb - in what respect is the "wrong" John Reel linked to you? Where is the link you want to be unlinked?

"Your" tree does not show you linked to Reel-286 or his son John, so you can't be unlinked.

What is the real problem here?
