Have you seen this G2G Q&A:  http://www.wikitree.com/g2g/10988/how-should-i-handle-profiles-with-no-information

If the profile has no infornation about an individual you can merge it away by merging it into any other profile.  I would make sure the biography section is blank before merging to prevent messing up the the "host" profile.

Thanks, Daniel. I did see the G2G Q&A but it was suggesting that there was a name on the profile, and mine has none. But your suggestion to Merge them to any other profiles seems like the perfect solution. I'm hoping there might be a way to do that in bulk, but we'll see.
