welcome to Geni. Are you saying that this person, Victor HASSMAN, is YOUR late husband?
If so, then you should send messages to David Goldfarb and Private User, who are the managers of this part of the tree. They will be able to transfer management of the profiles of your immediate family to you, and connect you into this tree. I don't know Kathy, but David is a good guy, and generally happy to help.
In the mean time, if you add profiles to your own tree, for Victor and his mother Esther, then I can connect you directly.
If either of you need assistance in this feel free to send me a message or comment here. You send people messages by going to their profile by clicking on their name, and pressing the send message link to the right of their name.
