Hi Dale,

This is due to the privacy settings put on the profile before it was orphaned.

I suggest you email info@wikitree.com and tell them you're William's relative (include the profile ID and yours), and that you'd like to adopt.

They will set something up for you. Good luck!

But there is an "Adopt" button.
It doesn't work, though, when the privacy is set so.
I see that now.  I was afraid to try it because I didn't want to inadvertently adopt it.  But that button shouldn't be there!

Why don't you adopt it?
