The merge of https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Cole-16143 and https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Cole-332 needs someone with pre-1500 certification to complete it. There also appear to be multiple duplicates in this family -- wife, offspring, etc.

(Note: I am not PM on any of these, they appeared on my Watchlist.)

The two John Coles have different parents. One is the son of John Cole and Agnes FitzWarin, and the other is the son of Reginald Cole and John Laurance. To complete the merge, we will need to select his parents. Any ideas which are the right ones?
No. It may be that the merge should be rejected and was simply proposed due to same name. It seems someone added me to all of the profiles they manage and I am entirely unfamiliar with the person(s) represented here.
I think the merge looks OK. The spouse is the same. The son Simon is the same. And Simon's spouse is the same. Just not sure about the parents. This might need some more research before we can complete it.
Very possible that Reginald and Joan Laurence did exist and did have a son called John.  But not the same John who married Meriet and had Simon.

Pole is just listing out the few scraps he's collected.  He doesn't have enough material for a connected pedigree.

The wives and sons should be merged, but Cole-16143 could be kept to represent Pole's first John, since we have the parents for him.
I've proposed a few merges for various of the duplicates:  What's the proper spelling:  Meriet or Meriot?  Lure or Lewre (or another variation)?

Since one of the profile managers is Pre-1500 certified, a PM to that profile manager would be a good step at collaboration.
