Have you asked the PM? He/she may have set it that way. A PM has done that in some of mine.

And if the profiles are for people born more than 150 years ago/died more than 100 years ago (which the parents of someone  born in 1811 would certainly be), then the profile manager should not have set them to private, and either the PM or WT staff should open the profiles.

Hello Wendy.

Checking the profile's changes log and the contributions of the PM I found the WikiTree IDs of MacKinley-38's parents:

Father: MacKinlay-44

Mother: Fisher-6811

Both profiles are set as "living". The profiles were created on 22 Dec 2014. The PM's last activity was on 28 Apr 2015 so I think there would be no luck in trying to contact the PM.

Only the WikiTree Team members have the powers to fix this.

I've orphaned the profile but the parents are unlisted because they had empty date fields; you'll need to ask info@wikitree to open them up.
