As a living person and non-member of WikiTree, your prifile has to be Unlisted, and therefore invisible to anyone but the prifile manager.

Your late mother is different.  She is related to other people besides you, and they might want her profiled here.  You might in some version of reality be able to get her profile deleted, but I wouldn't bet on it.

As Emily said, try the Profile Manager first.  If not satisfied, email

I don't think they need to be deleted. Have you talked to the profile manager? I doubt the person that created the profiles has any malicious intent.

Unauthorized profiles of living non-members can be taken down.
I wasn't aware of that. Sorry

That link leads to the form that you can submit, except that it is not very well done.  The form automatically fills in the last part of the web address you use to get to it - in this case it's WikiTree-1 - which becomes the ID of the profile you want removed.  In addition, it does not give you that information on the page with the form.

If you want to use that form, when you get to that page, you have to change the WikiTree-1 ending in the address window and then click the Go button or press the Enter key to have the same page display the ID of the profile you want removed - now you can fill out the form.

I recommend skipping the form and just write to - it will be much easier for you to do.
