Crystal, I'm assuming youre reading already posted profiles. Its quite possilbe that whoever posted it didn't know of her existence, only posted the siblings they knew about.

If you''ve entered the data, it should be there, but it's a possibility that some confusion occured. I know I've had problems posting siblings instead of children, etc.

To add to what Tom said: Another possibility is that your grandmother's profile is private even though your great-grandfather's profile is public. In which case, your grandmother would appear as a "[private daughter]." You'd need Trusted List access from the family member that manages her profile.

If you are looking at a WikiTree include the WikiTree ID in your question so others can see what you are asking about.

Also - on the  profile page of her 'dad' - below the name/birth/spouse information you will see a line with:

Profile manager ______________   [send private message]

Click on the    [send private message]  to share your information and ask your question directly to that person who actually entered your great grandfather's profile.    You may discover that you are long lost cousins - with even more notes to share!

Good Luck

Once  you enter individuals there are buttons to add to other family members.  [add sibling]   [spouse?]   [children?]
If you put in one individual at a time, and don't use these links - they won't show as being connected.
If that is what happened:  on her dad's page - click [children] and it will bring up a screen to add a child.  Once you enter her name etc.  and click add - another screen will come up and show you matching names on WikiTree that you can choose as the "SAME PERSON" profile - find the one you previously entered and click the button next to that person.  Then click the bar near the bottom right.
If there are not matches to your person, you would pick create a new profile at the top right.
