...to unlock Rachel Story Saunders profile? The profile manager has not been around in four years. Her LNAB is listed as unknown but I know it and want to correct it. I contacted the profile manager back in February and have heard nothing. She was born about 1782 so meets the more than 150 years since death. Thanks!

Please forgive me, everyone. This was not intended to be locked or private. I have been offline for a long time and just found everyone's comments in an old email.

If I was successful, the profile is open to any geneaperson who wants to edit or update it.

Making this change to all of my ancestors over 100.

Thanks, Don! However, you are the profile manager and therefore are the only one that can change her last name at birth (LNAB). If this is something you don't want to do, would it be too much trouble for you to add me to the trusted list? Then I can add her LNAB and connect her to her family, and yours! Thank you, Nancy
I'd like to add you as a Profile Manager, but it says I need your email address. I think they should change this so I can just use your member number or a link to your profile. If that were possible, I'd open my tree up to a lot of good people who are working diligently on this. I enjoy doing it, but tends to be in spits and spurts.

Thank you for changing Rachel's LNAB! I will now gather my information on her side to hopefully go back another generation or two!

HI Nancy

To get management of this profile you will need to file a Unresponsive Profile Manager Request it takes some time and outlines some requirements. You can find the link for this specific profile here https://www.wikitree.com/contact/upm/Unknown-254466

I sent a note to the profile manager. He was active in April of this year.

Nancy, you could file an open profile request, since the profile meets criteria for that.  This would not make you manager, so you wouldn't be able to change the LNAB, but it is much faster and easier to file than an unresponsive manager request and it would enable you to edit the profile.
