A member of our family, who was also active in Wikitree, died recently.  For the benefit of his family and for those who would have tried to contact him about Wikitree work, I would like to delete the e-mail address.  How do I do that?

I think the address in that profile would have already been removed from the data base when you entered a date of death on the profile.  You could test it from your own account to make sure. If that turns out not to be the case, and you are not on the trusted list, then I'd suggest writing to info@wikitree.com and ask to have the address deleted.

The Wikitree team has been very helpful, and the address has been removed.  Folks might like to know that entering a death date in the profile does not automatically bring this about.

Thanks for the supportive comments, and the help in amending the profile.  I hope not to need such help very often!
