Is there a way of having two profiles with one email address?

I know the short answer to this question is "no", but sometimes there are ways around that, like using different capitalisation. I tried just changing the capitalisation here, but it didn't work. Is there another way?

Basically the problem is that my parents (like many baby boomers) share an email address, as do my grandparents. So my mom and grandma are WikiTreers but there's no way of inviting my dad and grandpa so that I can add their DNA tests back to the site.

Hello Lianne.

As far as I know there is no way to have two different WikiTree accounts with the same e-mail address.

A solution could be helping them to set up e-mail accounts as suggested in the GDPR FAQ. Please see here:

you can set up email accounts for your relatives. you can use google. it is free. i have several accounts for myself and help with accounts for my son and mother.

If you're using Google Gmail, you can also set up the accounts as delegated accounts; that gives you access to check for messages from WikiTree if they aren't interested in managing their page.
