I have erroneously added Grace Lavinia (Owens) Francis twice.  Owens - 10476 and Owens - 10474.  She is showing as being a half sister to herself.  Grace is the still living half sister to my father Richard George Owens and she has a full brother Ernest John Owens.  How do I merge the two entries for Grace
WikiTree profile: Owens-10474

In short: you enter both of the profile IDs in this form: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Special:MergePerson

It is convention to have the newer profile on top, and the older (meaning: was there first) in the second box.

You can access this form from the bottom of the profile page. If you are the profile manager for both, you can initiate and approve both sides. If the second profile has another profile manager, you will  need to await their approval. If the profile has no profile manager, than you can become the profile manager and approve (if you are sure enough)

The documentation: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:Merging

I can't really help in more detail as the profile you mention is closed.

Hope this helps.
