I am working on my Gedcom file - many of the suggest matches have private profiles.  I have contacted some of them and after a week or more they have not responded. What should I do about the psuggested matches?

Private profiles generally mean living people, so it's best to simply reject all such matches. If the person it's suggesting the match for is living, you probably shouldn't be entering a profile for that person on WikiTree anyway, and if the person is deceased, then the private (presumably living) profile is clearly not a match.
