I added an email address for my husband. Now Wikitree thinks I am him. How do I log in with my own email?

Connie, my guess is that you entered the same email address for your husband as the one you entered in your own profile.  WikiTree identifies people for login purposes by their email address, so two members cannot share the same email address.

If that's what happened, then you need to enter a different email address in your husband's record, then check your own record (since you'll be logged in to your husband's account, hopefully he's on your trusted list so that you'll be able to see your own record) and make sure that your correct email address is still there.

If that's not the problem (or if it is and my suggestion doesn't fix it) then you'll have to write to info@wikitree.com and explain it - they'll be able to fix it.

ancestry does that to me if I don't log out of my dads account. it wont let me log into mine unless I do. a lot of times I just click off the page without logging out and that's why it doesn't let me log in
