How do I invite someone to join WikiTree?

I'm confused about how to invite someone. I'm trying to invite a cousin who I've made a profile for; when I click on "Invite" it gives me a page where the first option is to enter an email address and "Add This Person"--but when I do that it takes me to a form with the message: This e-mail address is not associated with a WikiTree account yet. Enter the person below to invite them to WikiTree.

I don't want to add them again, because they're already on the tree, and in any case that page warns me not to use it for a family member:

"If you're adding a family member it's better to add them as a parent, sibling, spouse, or child from your profile or from someone else in your family tree or Watchlist instead of using this form. This form is for adding people without a known family connection to anyone else on WikiTree."

But when I use "Invite" on my own page, it takes me to the "Add This Person" page--rinse and repeat.

Clearly I'm doing something wrong. What should I be doing?

Go to your cousin's profile/edit and insert their email address in the box below gender. This will send an invite to them.
