How do you become a supervisor of your uploaded gedcom?

I would like to supervise my own uploaded gedcom.  To many changes to it and I have researched for over 25 years.

How would I go about changing from manager to supervisor?

Hi Sandra,

Every profile on WikiTree is independent. It doesn't matter if they were uploaded through a GEDCOM. That's just the first change in the profile's history.

There are no supervisors of profiles or GEDCOMs. Every profile has a Profile Manager. If you're the manager, you can do as much on that profile as any Supervisor.

See for basic principles of the community and the Help pages for more info on all these topics.

Hi Sandra; you might also consider that the goal of WikiTree isn't that we have separate trees, but that we share one tree. We all take care of the profiles that make up the tree together, with particular attention to our own ancestors. It's expected that if you upload a GEDCOM, you'll cooperate with others to merge shared ancestors, and then you'll take care of those profiles together.
