How do I delete documents from My Heritage purporting to relate to my Aunt when they do not?

Today, I noticed that My Heritage has a 'source' on my Aunt's page purporting to show documents available for her. They most definitely do NOT relate to my aunt at all.

When I typed her information in my Ancestry GEDcom which I then uploaded to WikiTree, her name was as shown on her birth certificate. However, she was never known by her first name, Mary, only by her middle name, which was Margaret and that is the name I always knew her by. Actually, we called her Aunt Maggie.

When I checked what was available on My Heritage, all the documents were for a Mary Martin here in the US. My Aunt Maggie was born in Canada and of course, she emigrated to the US in the early 1900's and always lived in CT.

I have just let my subscription to My Heritage expire (as of yesterday to be exact) as I have run into this kind of problem many times before and have so many requests to confirm information submitted by others researching relatives. Many times, this has been helpful; many times not so much. I get at least 3 requests weekly to confirm hundreds of other names that may or may not match and the citations, etc. that I've lost interest in My Heritage.

Thank you for any suggestions you may give me on how to delete this 'source' on my aunt's page - Martin-25118.

I'm sorry, but I don't know. I find My Heritage frustrating. What do you need to be changed on your aunt's WikiTree profile? It's open for anyone to fix.
Sorry; but when I sent this question to G2G was a bit 'bleary eyed' as I had spent hours once again researching my ancestry and uploading documents, etc. I just re-checked and realize my question should have been directed to My Heritage as the mis-information does not appear in her profile on WikiTree.

Thanks for your reply to me.

I would suggest contacting the profile manager, he is an active member:

Thanks for your suggestion for me to contact Ray Girouard; he has made me the manager for my Aunt Maggie's page as I have quite a bit of information due to close family ties and documents shared by a cousin of mine who is her niece. I have the issue with My Heritage and will contact them for the answer as that is where I found the error (among many other errors over the years).
