How can I adopt the profile Howes-614?

+2 votes
I started looking into the family tree last week with my Dad and aunt.  I came home and googled the name of my Grandfather, Norman Jack Howes, which lead me to Wikitree and profile Howes-614.  The linage above this profile is correct, and I have made a start filling in some of what I know, but I want to adopt this profile which has no manager and does not show me a link to adopt.  I have read on the forum it might be because I have made less than 100 contributions so far.  Can anyone out there help?

It is yellow. You will need admin intervention. If they don't set you up in a day or so drop an email to

I don't know about a 100-contribution requirement, but I couldn't adopt him either.  I thought I would adopt him and then add you to the Trusted List.  The problem is that the profile is not Public.  I think you'll need intervention by a Higher Power.  An empowered person will probably see your post and help you out.

Welcome to G2G, and good luck!
