Start-my-day message -- A merge of James Lamkin (Lamkin-112) and James Lamkin (Lamkin-54) was just completed by Iris Hooge. Please see https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Lamkin-54 for the merged profile.

Main obstacle here is I am not cert pre-1700.  

Would someone who has the cert. please do the honors of exam and tidy up if needed?

I will take a look

You might consider getting the pre-1700 badge yourself if you have an interest in profiles from this era.

What this profile needs are sources, other than Ancestry trees, which are not proper sources for pre-1700 profiles.

There are several promising appropriate sources listed after the sources section, but they could use some links to them, perhaps inline citations.

The profile of his father George likewise lists a number of interesting sources, but again, no links or other access information given.

I have added one, but for some reason Ancestry's Sharing Image function wasn't working.

No doubt someone will be grateful for those sources, Lois, and on their behalf I thank you and no, I'm not going to cert as pre-1700's any time foreseeable since my contributions continue to range from approx 1840 

Well, other than that there's not really anything post-merge to tidy - there's nothing there there.

laugh Bigger mystery for me is when did I propose that merger? eh, well, fait accompli If I'm notified, then I musta had a finger in that pie 

Thank YOU Lois very much

That happens to me.  I propose a merge, I wait for geological time for the default approval, then I can't remember what I was thinking in the first place.
