I created Fourie-6532 and added a source, afterwards I saw she had an extra name and that Fourie-3730 has more correct nformation and I want to add her Church source that I source and got a message that I must ask a question on G2G.  If this is not correct please let me know.

Regards

Anja

Hey Anja,

Thanks for the notice. The way to go, and you have already started it, is to propose a merge. That will combine these two profiles. You can see the progress of the merge at the bottom of one of the two profiles, and in your merge feed in the menu.

When both profile managers respond and agree to the merge, the merging is completed.  See https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:Merging#Pending_Merges

Probably in this case the other profile manager needs a little bit more time (last activity was in 2019). When the profile manager does not respond in time (about 1 month), the merge becomes public and anyone can complete it.

I would refrain from adding sources to the other profile for now. At the merge step, you have the option to edit the biography. The more duplicate info there is, the more time that takes.

Hi Anja, when creating profiles please take the time to check the possible duplicates that might pop up (although they sometimes don’t appear immediately). It might save you time if you find more ancestors already on Wikitree. It is so satisfying adding to them.
