The idea behind Wikitree is to connect everyone together. Right now we have over 22,578,000 connected. because they are living I can't see your father or his family or who are the managers. But when you connect to the main tree you will see how you are connected to over 22,578,000 people.

There are many different way to look at them so this may be the reason for your difficulty. Could you get into a little more detail of your problem?

Have you got a source which says she shouldn't be there? You can unlink her if so.

Since this is all one big tree, and every person should have their own profile, you might like to leave her.  Why do you want to remove her? (apologies if that is a bit personal)

If these people existed, they deserve to have profiles here. We don't expel people from WikiTree just because they aren't our personal blood relatives.

The page Help: Collaborative Family Tree has further explanation of the structure and philosophy here.

It isn't clear what you are referring to. You have not added any family to Wikitree and you are not connected to the tree either.

Not finding profiles for a Heavy Underwood Shirley or a Maxine McCan. There is a Richard  Underwood Shirley but he is not married to a Maxine. Can you post a link to their profiles?  If they do have profiles, they do need to stay on WikiTree, to help fulfill the goal of connecting the world. in one big WikiTree.

You haven't added any profiles yet.  If you add your father,  his parents etc.  you do not have to add his siblings yourself.  If in the future another family member wished to add your aunt, they may connect them to those parents.
