You can change the Last Name at Birth field only if you are the profile manager.  If that is the case, here are the steps:

  • Edit the profile
  • For the Last Name at Birth field, click "[edit]" at the right side of the incorrect last name
  • Enter the correct name in the box labeled "Correct Last Name at Birth:"
  • Click the "CORRECT THE LAST NAME AT BIRTH" box
  • Done!

If you are not the profile manager, and the profile has no manager (it will state "No Profile Manager" on the profile), you can click "[adopt this profile]" to become the profile manager - then you can make the name change, add the source of your information, and make any other edits you may want to make.

If you are not the profile manager, and the profile has a manager, click "[send private message]" next to the profile manager's name to send the person a message.  You can either ask them to change the name and provide the source of your information, or you can ask them to add you to the trusted list for the profile.  Once you have been added to the trusted list you will be able to change the name, add sources, and make other edits.
