Possible Causes

There are multiple reasons for this suggestion:

  • Missing father relation on Wikitree.
  • "Private with Public Biography" privacy set on either profile

Action Steps

Of course you should first check if both findagrave memorials represent the correct persons on wikitree. Then you should try to find a source for the parent claim and add the relation if everything checks out.

There are 4 possibilities of an error.

  • Wrong link to FindAGrave. Delete or correct the link to FindAGrave. You can also mark error as false error.
  • Error on FindAGrave. Mark suggestion as false suggestion.
  • Error on WikiTree. Define father relation on WikiTree.
  • Privacy problem on WikiTree. Since the relation is no secret (it is public on FindAGrave) you can change the profile privacy to "Private with Public Biography and Family Tree" or "Public" or "Open".

There are some exceptions where there is adoption in play or if profiles are not linked correctly to FindAGrave.
