How can I edit a locked maiden name

+3 votes
Hello!  I am working on a profile that needs to have the 'maiden name' edited.  However the maiden name window seems to be locked.  How can I change it as this profile line is going nowhere.

The name of the profile in question is Eliza Hall Stith

The profile shows the the maiden name as Hall but it should be Harl or Harle.

Resource documents such as her daughter's death certificate shows the mother's maiden name as 'Harl'.  Other documents support the same.

I have uploaded this document to the profile page of her mother as a source for the correct maiden name.

Would appreciate any advice you may have.  Many thanks and by the way Happy New Year!

Hi Scott. I've made the correction and added Eliza's marriage record (thanks to your tip). Please don't hesitate to send "trusted list requests' for any of the profiles I manage. You will find the link to do this on the right side of the profile under the Collaboration heading. I can then add you as a manager. Thanks so much!

Hi Scott, Please post a note on the public bulletin board section of the profile, or send a message to the Profile Manager for the Eliza Stith profile.  Please indicate the correct Last Name at Birth and your source for the data.

The Profile Manager needs to make the change.  Kitty

Ahhhh!  Well I should have known that!  I am working with the profile manager as a co-manager on the mention profile's daughter...writing the bio and adding sources, but when I discovered the mother's last name was incorrect I tried to change it.

I just sent a message to the manager.  Needless to spend time on the profile I am working on when her mother's maiden name is wrong.

Many thanks Kitty!  Scott
