I am not allowed to change Unknown-480412 last name at birth to the correct Clausdatter - no Edit at the namefield. The person was born 1821 and I have sourced her baptism record.

The same applies to her daughter Rasmine Jensen born 1850, who has been given an uncorrect Rasmussen as LNAB.

Only the Profile Manager or someone on the Trusted List can change the LNAB.  You will have to request to join the Trusted List.  Or you could put the information (plus source!) in the public comments on Kirsten's profile.

OK and thanks Ros; I thought open profiles could be edited by everone. I could edit both the date and place of birth and also her given name.
The rest of it, you can.  But not the LNAB.
