Can you provide some specifics for which ancestors were added? If you can give WikiTree ID information or copy the web address, we should be able to help you track down what happened.

Unfortunately, things like this happen in a wiki environment.  The mistakes made were unintentional, made by people trying to find their ancestors. There is no my tree/your tree on Wikitree, only the world tree shared by everyone.

Sherrie, You will be able to see who manages the profiles in question and who linked them to the profiles that you manage. If you have doubts about the connections that have been made then you should make contact and discuss the discrepancies that you see. You will need to have sources to support your theory that an error has been made. You may even find when you make contact with the people involved that you meet new relatives.
