Merging two trees

Gray-29920 and Gray-24812 are duplicates. The name on the former is correct, but the latter is earlier. I am not sure how to proceed as this would be my first merge.

Hi Jana.  You can go ahead and propose a merge (click on the 'Initiate a Merge' link at the bottom of the profile.  Then as soon as the other profile manager approves it, either of you can complete the merge.  The other manager is active, so hopefully you shouldn't encounter a long delay.

And unless it’s a case of different spellings of the LNAB, the higher number is always merged into the lower.  You can choose  data elements from either profile to carry into the merged one.
Don’t worry if you propose a merge in the wrong direction. The person who completes the merge will determine the correct direction -- and the system will not let them merge to the same surname with a higher profile number.
