After completing the unresponsive profile manager request for Ray-1860 and waiting the allotted time to hear back, I received this email.
"Unresponsive Profile Manager for Ray-1860"
"This profile and all Public and Open profiles on this family line have been
orphaned and are available for adoption."
I then tried to adopt Ray-1860 but it is still green and has a profile manager listed. (The same pm who has been inactive since 2013.) Neither this profile or any of his ancestors show up on the orphaned list.
Next I replied to the http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/WikiTree_Team with a message explaining that the profile is not open and asked for assistance. It was suggested in the response that I read the help pages or ask in G2G.
So here I am. I would like to adopt this profile, but don't really know what I am doing wrong. I thought I had followed all the necessary steps and filled out all the forms. I was pretty sure of that when I got the email. Now, I'm not so certain.
All I want to do is connect my great grandmother to her father. (Ray-1860). I don't really care whether I am on the trusted list or the pm, I just want to be able to connect her to her family and to add sources for them.
What should be my next step? Any thoughts?
