I have an 8th ggrandmother whose profile seems to have originated with an Ancestry gedcom import which contained various incorrect or misleading data. Through a chain of events I became involved with it a couple of noths ago, although I hadn't planned to work on correcting it yet until I had worked back to that time period of ancestors. After making corrections and updates, all that remains of concern to myself is that the current LNAB still needs to be corrected. Through a misinterpretation of an 1880s secondary resource, a surname had been applied on Ancestry and was imported to Wikitree. Prior to the application of that surame on that other website, there never has been any known primary or secondary sources which suggested any surname, it has always been shown as ----. All of this has been explained in detail within the updated profile.
After contacting the current profile manager and exchanging several emails, I have gotten te impression that they haven't even read the profile, as their responses were already addressed in the profile. Their final stance seems to be that the surname can't be proven to not be XXXXXX, which has nothing to do with it. By the same token, the surname can't be PROVEN to not be Smith or Williams or Jones or any other surname. Essentially, no surname has ever even been suggested until the advent of unsourced Ancestry Family Trees. Potentially shie is a PGM candidate, except for the fact that nothing is known about her before her early 1640s marriage to my 8th ggrandfather. Even Anderson in his Great Migration works indicates her as unknown surname and only refers to her by her married name.
So, is there a policy, procedure, or committee for dealing with this situation, or should I just try to forget the whole thing and leave this bit of misleading information on Wikitree?
I have not mentioned the profile or manager in question as I do not wish to publicly single out a fellow Wikitree member.
