Susan, there isn't a direct way to do it.  WikiTree gets that list from familysearch and cannot edit it.  If you are a familysearch member then you should be able to request additions/deletions/corrections to the list from them.  WikiTree re-imports the list periodically, so there will be a little lag but any changes that are made will get here.

The link to request edits is https://www.familysearch.org/research/places/

And we don't import the list, we use FamilySearch's API so any changes should show up as soon as it is changed at FS.
