If you have any surname in your watchlist then you will get notified of any activity with that name, just in case.

I realise if they are totally unrelated this can get frustrating, and some bad news perhaps is I have dozens more in my line to add and or edit. It is one of my active research lines at the moment.

A short term solution would be to remove yourself as manager but I realise that may not be a satisfactory answer. If you prefer you could transfer the profile to me then when I have finished with my edits I will transfer it back to you. PM me if that suits you.

Hi Cousin...

No, there is no way to do this.  If you want you can take yourself off as the manager and just put me as the manager (I think I'm on the trusted list for most of them anyway) I'll keep an eye on them for you.

Having a cosin take over the one profile is of course always a better option, but looking today at what I need to add most of them were  US bound so we may all be cousins.

Do you also have Potts as your surname TAG in your personal settings ?

It's easy to stop receiving these. Go to http://www.wikitree.com/index.php?title=Special:Following and remove "potts".

The ability to follow surnames and tags is a special feature for Wiki Genealogists whose interest extends beyond their own family.

If you're only interested in your family members, don't follow tags. Then you won't have a Wiki Genealogy Feed or receive daily updates. Just make sure the family members are on your Watchlist. Then you will just get your Watchlist/Family Activity Feed and weekly updates.
