Howdy Joe, basically we don't delete profiles at wikitree:


They can be recycled, merged or change last name and use it with a different surname. JPV IV :)

Yes, I finally figured it out, Thank You

Joe, WikiTree is very different than any other genealogical site. I started at ancestry.moc. I too was used to simply deleting profiles / merging them with any duplicates on my tree that I had made.

WT is not easy or simple but we have many members willing to help in G2G and you can also ask for a Mentor. 

You can always use the Search box (top left of this page) or search on google for WT topics by typing what you want to find then wikitree.

Here is a link to wikitree basic tutorial-Merging Profiles by: Paul Bech . 

WikiTree Help / Help Index = hover your mouse over the word "Help" on any WT page, a drop down box appears, click Help Index. I seem to use it quite frequently even after 3 years at WT.

Here is a link to a G2G post I made w/ other links to similar Questions: . Please don't take offence to the dummies reference. After reading 3 X my first computers instructions... I ran out and bought DOS for Dummies and PC's for Dummies. 

Robin Lee, says in the above post: And....when all else fails....ask for help.   If you interested in what we do....take a look at .
