Re WARD 10382 I am unable to join the Trusted list or edit, and there is no profile manager to contact

I am the manager for all the siblings, parents and other extended family. I obviously did not add this person at the beginning and another person must have done so. Where to from here?

Wow. This must somehow have been a profile that was caught up the recent privacy changes "GDPR".  I can't see any reason for it to be private, since it has no profile manager, and the subject of the profile has been deceased since the 1960s.  (Of course, like you, I can't see much).  Some sort of change happened on June 16 (yesterday) that may have triggered the privacy level, but we can't see that either.

I'll bet someone in a leadership position is going to need to get it opened up, though. Here's a one-click link to the profile, to make it easier for others:

My guess is that it has become private because there is a 'private daughter' attached.

But I agree with Reba, that a Leader is going to have to open it up.  Email info @

Adopt the profile! It says 'No profile manager', and right next to that is a link which says 'Adopt this profile' - so go right ahead.

Ros -- unless you changed something, it can't be adopted.  I tried that as an experiment and some kind of red flag popped up that said it couldn't be adopted because it wasn't open... something like that.   (And I didn't want to adopt it anyway.)

Strange...I was sure it was Open when I looked.
