If you're referring to four DIFFERENT profile pages, each with their own profile manager, then when these are merged, each of those profile managers receives a request to merge. And, as Chris explained, each of the four will end up being listed on the resulting merged profile page.

Hi Sandra,

If a profile has multiple managers, they will all get the merge proposal. Does that answer your question?

By the way, I assume by "owner" you mean Profile Manager. (Not to be pedantic, but understanding the profiles aren't owned is important on WikiTree.)

If you see a profile with multiple managers it's possible that multiple profiles have already been merged together. The most common way to become a manager is to create a profile. When two profiles are merged, both managers become managers on the merged profile by default. Managers can be removed and added at any time, but that's less common.

Total newbie, so thanks for clarifying the process! Sandi
