I found this site because I was looking for more information on things I can't find on Ancestry. I don't have a subscription to News Papers which is also owned by Ancestry. Find a Grave is also owned by Ancestry because they bought it. I believe that people should have basic information for free, so I have uploaded a few members of my very long family tree, but not all of them. I hope other people can help by adding some more information to the profiles. I think at some point I will subscribe to Newspapers, but only briefly, and in time I will no longer subscribe to Ancestry as it is too expensive to keep long term. Once I have finished the trees, I will quit those pay sight and maybe join them again if there is more information down the road. 1-10-2019

Thank you for your message.
If the current profile manager is willing to hand the profile to you. They need to Orphan the profile by removing their email address from the profile. Then you adopt the profile by clicking on the word adopt profile.
An alternative is you request to be added to the trusted list this gives you almost as much access to the profile as the current profile manager, but does not remove them as profile manager.
It is for you both to work out what suits you best
Hope you get it sorted

How is it going so far, were the How-Tos pages helpful or did they leave you with questions?
Clicking your green tags shows members who follow that tag. Add a tag for FRENCH_ROOTS add other countries use underscore to join two elements together The more tags you add the more links to community & research options Information on tags is on page one of the How To pages.
We want to help you learn about the site and the community, hopefully you found the pages and links useful. I have page one bookmarked for reference page

To Volunteer just add any surnames of interest into Tags so that you have one tag for each surname and location. By doing that, when you are confirmed as a full member you can then click on those tags, and you'll be taken to a page where you'll see other genealogists who are also following those surnames and locations. I really encourage you to explore the connections it helps you make. :-)
Don't forget to Check the Volunteer Box
Also Note There is a button to click at the bottom of the page that says Add tags and Volunteer. It is rectangular.
When you have done that one of our Greeters will confirm you as a full member so that you can Edit your Profile and enter information into WikiTree.
