Created a Notables profile for  {{Frick-517}} as father of ((Frick-516}}. Can't get mother's profile to save. Her name was  Elizabeth Stauffer (Overholt) Frick (1819 - 1905).

What steps are you taking? Here's what I'd do.

Go to http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Frick-516.

Click on edit.

Add mother.

Enter the info. Be sure there are no non-alpha characters in her any of her name fields.

click save. Check the very top of the Edit page after you've clicked save. Are there any error messages up there? Sometimes they're easy to miss.
Also, there are a bunch of potential dupes, so the system might be wanting you to click on something that says none of these match, create a new profile...
