Attempting to source the profile for Edward Hepworth, I opened the profile of his daughter Elizabeth, born 1780 (Hepworth-190) only to find that it is the profile of Elizabeth Sidney formerly Hepworth,  born 1792, (Hepworth-189).

How do you correct this?

This is an old bug from merging which still occasionally turns up. Both profile IDs still seem to exist, but can't be merged into the other as they have been merged in the past. I will let Jamie from the Team know as she hunts these down.

This is strange. Hepworth-194 has a daughter Hepworth-189. However, when looking at the profile for the daughter, Hepworth-189, it shows that she does not have a father!

Edit the father's profile and remove the daughter. That should fix the problem.
