Spouse is going to son instead?

+5 votes
Is this an issue or am I doing something wrong?

When I click on the spouse (when I hover over spouse in edit mode it says he is Skurr-5) but when I click on him, it takes me to her son which is Skurr-2. I have not done any of the work involved so I don't know how it was done.  I did notice the son is not attached to his father though.

Can someone see what happens for them?

I'm starting to wonder if they have been merged (incorrectly)...

That was an oddity... LOL!

I just figured it out and George is now only reflected as the child.

I hope all is well now... :-)

You were right they were merged but it is still odd that if you hovered over the husband on her profile it showed his dates and not the son's. Not to mention the names were different.

I am not sure why it is even showing her husband with a different name. If you hover over it on her profile it shows his birth date is different than the son's.

The father was merged into the son's profile which is why it is taking you to the son's profile. Those should not have been merged but it was done about 5 years ago.

The husband will have to be detached and a new profile created for him if there is not a duplicate already.

No, you did nothing wrong.

Okay, that is what I was wondering because you can't 'undo' I merge to my knowledge.  Thought I was losing it for a minute there. Cheers
No you were not losing it. No, a merge can not be undone.

I saw that. It makes no sense why a son and father would be merged but, that was years ago. I am still not sure why the father's name did not change on his wife's profile, or why if you hovered over it his birth date was in the 1880's.
