Where is the place to add an email to a profile so that person will get an invitation to join WikiTree?

I have a family member who already has a profile.  Now I think they would like to join WikiTree as a genealogist.  I really don't know what to do at this point.

Hi Judy, Go to the profile and click the privacy tab and at bottom area enter the Family members email address and click add this person and they will be sent an invitation to join WikiTree and to become the manager of their profile. 

Adding an e-mail address for someone else

You can include an e-mail address when you create a family member's profile, or at any time after that when you edit their profile.

Adding an e-mail address will automatically send that person an invitation to join you on WikiTree. You'll be able to include personal comments on the invitation.

After sending the invitation you'll be invited to bulk-add them to other family members' Trusted Lists.

We only send one invitation. We don't want to appear to be spammers. If you want to send a new invitation you'll need to use the "[reinvite]" link (which will appear next to their address, and next to their name on your Watchlist).

When they accept the invitation are they given the opportunity to set up a password at that time?
Yes, they are invited to become a member of WikiTree by adding their email address and setting a password for their account. It is the same procedure you and I went through when joining WikiTree.
Thank you, David.  It was such a long time ago since I joined that I had forgotten the procedures.
Your welcome, Judy.
