My question is: Will WikiTree, as Geni just has, hijack my tree for a merge without consultation or permission?

Hi R and welcome. Wikitree is about ONE worldwide tree, so actually there no individual trees.

When  a merge is proposed the main profile managers of each profile are notified and they have up to 30 days to accept/reject/defer it.

You can always ask here in g2g for help if you need to.

Thanks. What I wanted to hear.

In other words: you don't own the profiles you add here nor a branch nor tree, but you are the manager of profiles. You create links to other profiles, preventing the creation of duplicates.

A merge is necessary in case a duplicate profile was created.

And as Marion says: we should all communicate about changes. See the Honor Code in the help menu.
