HI ALL, while going through a FAMILY NAME STRACHAN, I noticed there was some UNKNOWN ..... 6 in fact together, I am sure I would have had a DATE or another Name connected to any of these UNKNOWN, in my book they should be deleted, as they are giving out NO INFORMATIONAL help at all, i have gone through MY STRACHAN's in my TREE, I can not find any UNKNOWN that are connected to to me TREE, so how do I delete any or ALL of these, one with my Name attached.

I noticed that the system created Unknown Rabanus for me when I put in a sibling of my ancestor. So, it may be that they were created as a place marker for the parent of siblings.

That's correct. WikiTree doesn't connect siblings to each other directly, but through at least one parent, so any time anybody adds a sibling without adding a parent first, the system creates a placeholder profile for the father, and the first name will stay as "Unknown" until somebody edits the profile to insert the real name and other data.
THANKS for the further explaining, I will check my TREE again and see what I do with any CONNECTION.
