Isaac Moreland born 21 Jan 1820 was born in Portaferry co Down Ireland and not Banbridge, he married my great Grandmother Agnes Colville on the 9 Nov 1840 in Kircubbin Church of Ireland, not Banbridge. he died on 10 Oct 1902 in Kircubbin and is burried in Kircebbin Church of Ireland Grave yard you can find a photo of the grave in Billion Graves with his wife Agnes (or Nancy) who did not die untill 1895. so the Isaac Moreland married to Margaret Black in Banbridge is not the same person married to Agnes Colville. can you please ask /Valerie to remove this information I have proof of all my information if she wished to examine it.

You can contact the profile manager directly. The name will be displayed on the profile. There is an option to send them a message.

Why don't you volunteer and become a member of WikiTree?  In that case you can make the changes yourself (though it is polite to notify the Profile Manager what you're doing and why.)  Also, while they are part of your family tree, they're also part of many other trees and Wilitree desires to have a world-wide tree where everyone is connected to everyone else and people work together to improve the profiles (of people).

Often when there is conflicting information it is because two people with a similar name have become "conflated."  At that point the  best resolution is not simply to debate which information is most appropriate for a particular profile -- but to create (or find) a separate profile for the other person whose data has gotten mixed together.  It may sound counter-intuitive, but sorting all the data between two people can be easier than just trying to look at one and deciding which facts belong and which don't
