Blocked from adding my father by someone who entered his cemetery stone info.

A Sara Rice entered the data off my father's cemetery stone. Now I cannot enter him with-out her permission? What's up.

Hi Ken,

Have you contacted her and asked to be added to the Trusted List? Those would be the first steps before taking other action.

Thank You: No I am a little paranoid that someone from Russia downloaded find-a-grave and entered it into wikitree and awaits personal contact for the purpose of gleaning private info. Does this happen often? I have just started this with the hope of having relatives add to the tree.
Can you post a link to your father's profile? I can take a look.
The number assigned from Sara Rice's account was 16022. Does that help?

Okay, Sara is a member of our Cemeterists project. Members of that project are generous genealogists who are spending time photographing cemeteries and creating profiles for the folks buried there. Sort of like Find A Grave.  I don't think there's anything foul going on here. She most likely was working in the cemetery where your father is buried.  I'd encourage you to contact her and let you know that that's your father's profile. Chances are she'll be excited to hear from you.

Thank You: Your answer is a bit comforting. There are some very sophisticated scams out in the either. I will check out the Cemeterists project link and try and find her. Hope I didn't give anyone any ideas.
Here's the link to her profile:

You should see a couple different places where you can click to send her a private message. That's the best way to reach her.
