How to change profile manager, when an error was made?

+1 vote

Profile manager is not Robert Ernest Simpson. I (Jennie Simpson Spivey) entered all

the information. I don't know where I made the mistake. Email address is mine. How do I correct this?

Hi Jennie. It appears that you registered as your father, meaning you signed up, but filled in your own profile with your father's information.

There are two ways of fixing this:

1) You could change the data on your father's profile to be your own. This could be hard, since you've already got family attached, as well as pictures, so there would be lots of changes to make.

2) We can remove your email address from your father's profile, and add it to your own. You would then get a WikiTree invitation. The downside to this is that you would lose your contribution history, since you'd be starting over as a "new" user. But since you haven't been here long, you wouldn't be losing much. All your data you've entered would remain intact. I recommend this option.

Let me know if you choose #2 and I can do that for you.

Hi Jennie. It actually turned out to be easier just to change the data. If you look at your profile now, you'll see that I've edited the profiles so that the one with the active account has your information.
