Both the Father and Mother need DNA confirmation.  Can someone look into this?

Hi, Cindy. The error is that all the "confirmed with DNA" settings in both Michel's and his wife's lines need to be removed and changed to "confident," instead. There are no required DNA source citations describing the connections in any of the profiles; in fact, many of the profiles have no sources at all. I count at least 27 profiles incorrectly labeled "confirmed with DNA."

It looks like the same profile manager has all of these; she should be the one to make the corrections. Failing that, I believe (but I may be wrong) that you should feel free to make that change on profiles that are set as "Open" privacy.

While the WikiTree "confirmed with DNA" source citation wording may be going through some changes in light of GDPR and the new WT privacy policies, a citation describing the evidence is still required.

Thank you Edison.  I left a note for the PM and will do it myself if not taken care of over the next few weeks.  Thank you for your help explaining it.
Thanks, Cindy! The DNA should be confirmed but I have not had a chance yet to update the sources in the profiles. I will change to confident.
I see it's already done, Alexis,  Thank you for your prompt attention!
