Did you send the Project Manager a private message (which will go to his email) as well as posting the message on Stanley Butler's profile?

How long have you given him to respond? He may be away for a few days and unable to reply straight way -so try sending him a private message again if you haven't already done so.

It has been 4 weeks.  I put the public comment today in case the profile manager has changed email addresses - one of the large providers of email  in New Zealand exited the business in 2017 leaving heaps of email addresses inoperative.

There may be a work-around.

Create your Grandfather and Grandmother's profiles, with as much data as possible. (On the top menus, select 'ADD' - 'NEW PERSON' for your Grandfather, then select 'Spouse' and add your Grandmothers details).

Once done, then add a child, and put your Father's profile ID in the box.

Should work.

Tried that thanks Dave but it won't let me add my grandfather as father to my father.  The same person is manager of my mother's profile but because that is where we are related that side of the tree exists.

I see that the manager joined in August of last year, worked on profiles for only a few days and then nothing. In this case I think the unresponsive manager route would be your best option for any family profiles you wish to take over.

Post a message to the PM's profile and send them an email.  If they don't reply in 1 week, file the unresponsive profile manager report - you can find it in your father's profile under the family tree tab.
