Correct parents

+2 votes

Hello all!

Was trying to merge these duplicates (Collier-1481 and Collier-3547), but the parents are different.

Does anyone want to take a crack at figuring out which parents are correct?

Hi Sarah, I"ve proposed merges for

and the duplicate fathers:

The parents on Collier-3547 are not even close to correct since Thomas was born in Illinois, not Ireland. I've added more sources to Collier-1481 to show the correct information. His parents ARE correct. The parents on Collier-3547 need to be merged away since they don't belong to this family. I hope that all made sense.

Thanks! Emma

It appears they may be two different people, one born in Ireland and one in Illinois.

I saw the merge and am working on the duplicate parents on up the line right now. there's a disagreement on parents, but I'll see if I can sort it out.

I've got it sorted--pretty easy once you look at the records, but it will be a bit to clear up. Doing so now...
