Incorrect paternal line.
I have discovered after many years of research that the paternal line I have been told by
previous family researchers is not Y-DNA correct.
I do not know what protocol is to remove content provided by another person.
I have been open and provided DNA evidence to those involved but due to a lack
of knowledge about DNA the subject is taboo.
Where do I go from here.
FamilySearch Family Tree is built on the historical record, so if the pedigree has a paper trail linking parents and children then it remains a valid pedigree even if "not parent expected" events did occur.0

If you believe that a parent-child relationship in Family Tree is incorrect, you can delete it. See the instructions in
It is important to document your reasons as fully as possible. Otherwise someone may come along and reverse your changes. This may well happen anyway despite your best explanations.
You could also add a research note
If you click the box for Alert Note, this should maximise the chance that someone actually reads your note before making changes!0
Thank you for the replies.
For clarification, there is no paper trail, the person in question born 1822 in North Carolina
was added to another family with the same surname by speculation over a 2 generation
time period. Research by DNA both autosomal and then Y-DNA confirms no relation.
Thanks for your input.0
