Should we add these profiles as the parents for Melvin Howard Tormé?

I found some sources for Melvin Howard Tormé that include his parents names. These sources are for his birth and 2 census records. I went ahead and created profiles for the parents but have not connected them yet because Mel's profile is PPP. All of the dates and locations are an exact match and the names are the same as wikipedia has along with the birth location for the father. The profiles in question are https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Torm%C3%A9-4 for the father and https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Sopkin-7 for the mother.

I believe if you take a non-open profile and connect it to an open profile, it adjusts the privacy on the open profile. It's a bit of a bug in the system. To avoid it, you can usually do the connection from the open to the non-open (I believe - don't quote me). We're working on getting the profile opened back up now.

I can connect him to the global wikitree if only I could get past the PPP, so far no response from the profile manager.
