Hi

Unsourced profile is showing up on my unlisted profiles, does that automatically appear ? They are family members and I list we the family are providing information on living family members

I think it is automatic.  If you create what is going to be an Unlisted profile because living, you need to put something down as a source, even if it is 'Personal knowledge of blah blah blah'.

Thank you I do put it down and I still get it.
Just remove the {{Unsourced}} template from The top of the narrative.
Yes, Jillaine - that's what to do once it's there.  What I think the OP was asking was: why does it appear at all?
When a profile is created and either a) no inline citations are added to the narrative box or b) nothing is entered in the source box, the system automatically adds the Unsourced template. I've got to guess that's what happened even if a) or b) were only initially and briefly in that state.
Hi
