Hi, In this profile for John Moneypenny, his mother is listed as Unknown Ramsay.  However she is also listed as his grandmother, so one of these is not correct.  This profile is drawn from The Peerage, per link on profile.  While that may not be a great source for profiles from this period, it at least is clear that Unknown Ramsay is his grandmother - no mother identified.  Can a pre-1500 person unlink Unknown Ramsay as his mother, just to keep things physically plausible?  Thanks in advance.

I didn't try to research the relationship at all, but she is now just his grandmother instead of both his mother and grandmother.

Hi Joe - thanks for quick reply.  I was not expecting anyone to do the research, just fix an obvious bug.  Unfortunately Unknown Ramsay is now the mother of John Moneypenny the 6th - according to The Peerage she was his grandmother. Wrong link removed indecision

Nothing at all against what Joe has done, but my personal viewpoint is that pre-1500 profiles with no, or unsuitable, sources, the 'bug' or the Data Doctor suggestion stays uncorrected until someone actually has time to do the research.

There are many suggestions related to pre-1500 profiles from the days when anyone could download/add them, but I believe just changing details to make the suggestion go away can do more harm than good.
Something screwy was going on.  I know what you are saying about wikitree showing as the mother instead of the grandmother, but when I went to correct it they were not liked that way.  Same with the relationships to Thomas.  I had to disconnect everything, and then reconnect her to fix it.

If you have a source for these relationships that would be great.
