Thank you. I have tried several times dong exactly as you suggest and I get a message as follows:
Two active accounts cannot be merged. Please deactivate one account by removing its e-mail address, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for help.
Even though I am profile manager I cannot get access to the email address without being on the trusted list and even though I have tried to get onto the trusted list by emailing myself, this too has't worked.
I have therefore followed instructions to email wikitree who have subsequently asked me to put it onto G2G so that some kind member would help me.
Thank you for responding. If you can initiate it so that I just have to confirm it please do so.
