I am trying to merge Lavinah Davis Eslick #66185 into Lavinah Davis #24639; however this merge was previously rejected.30 Apr 2019. Both persons have the same date/place of birth, same date/place of death, same parents and siblings. Not sure how to proceed?

Any idea why the previous merge was rejected?
Hi Anita

The problem may be because the two fathers named  Theodorus have conflicting information.  You will need to compare Davis-50345 and Davis-24640 first.
I looked and could not find a reason/comment for the merge rejection.
Yes, I do see the conflicting death information for Theodorus Davis.  Unfortunately there is no source document on the actual death date and place for Theodorus Davis.

When profile Davis-66185 was created, the member who created it marked it as a Rejected Match to the existing profile. That happens sometimes, for example when new members are confused by the Add New Profile form.

To rectify that kind of error, you need to remove the Rejected Match (there is a hyperlink for this purpose next to the Rejected Match), then propose to merge the two profiles.

Thank you!  I have followed these directions and a merge has been proposed.
