Hi Tamara.  I understand the frustration.  What you're describing doesn't sound very much like "collaboration" as I understand the word.  And there have been other discussions in G2G suggesting that editors ought to back off for a while when it's clear that a profile is actively being worked on.  So I agree with Tannis that you should try contacting the other member.  You could point out this page in the Help file for starters:

And then, if you don't get satisfaction, you may need to become familiar with this page:

Good luck.

Thanks for the encouragement. I dont want to alienate this potential cousin. Just having you listen helped me!

So, Im going to have to address it -Next time--. At least Ive gotten it off my chest and will be able to deal with it calmly and thoughtfully. 

Thanks again

Tammy

Thank you for pointing out the links to me--I think they'll help me alot.

I just read both of these lnks and they are wonderful!  

I didnt realize they even existed, I should have known there would be a topic on this.  Wikitree truly is a great place.
