I found an orphan proile with no connections, dates or info - Should I connect it and add the info?

+2 votes

It seems to me that profile Bentley-608 has so little info that it is abandoned - practically speaking.  The creator of the profile Merryweather-11 is managed by Closed Accounts WikiTree.The only edits have marked it as unsourced and removed the manager.  Should I connect it and edit for the father of Bentley-2370?  Will that help tidy up a loose end or create a problem?

Yes, it looks like that would make sense.  Please add your documentation.

Thanks, I am working with info from a descendant - I think they will add doco... I think I will proceed anyway if overall  the tree will be no worse off.
I sure can't see any reason it would be!
thanks.  Neither can I.  This is why I asked of course.  Should I perhaps seek an an answer in Wikitree Tech?
In my opinion, you can just go ahead and improve the profile(s).  I don't think WikiTree Tech will have anything different to add.

Hi Sue, the profile is orphaned. You can adopt it and work on it, in fact it would be appreciated if you give it some TLC.
