Hi Linda! We are glad you are here! Thanks for joining us.
Keep in mind that there is only one big worldwide family tree here, the WikiTree. Sometimes folks will need you to make corrections to the profiles you have marked as public or private (they can make edits to open profiles themselves.) and sometimes you created a duplicate profile for someone and the duplicates must be merged so that there is only one leaf/profile on the WikiTree for each person.
If you are receiving contacts about profiles that are not on your Watchlist, I am not sure what is going on. Perhaps the errors are connected to the surnames Barfield, Reynolds or Whitlock that you have listed on your tags? You shouldn't get corrections for surnames that are totally unfamiliar, though you might get corrections for individuals that are totally unfamiliar.
