As I see the both profiles, the merge is done.

But two remarks:

1. You should always merge the higher number into the lower number and not the other way around, as you did.

2. How come you are sure that both profiles represented the same person? You have not added any source and any explanation. Just because the name is the same does not mean it is the same person.

In the case of cunningham-23 and Cunningham14627, the correct direction was into 14627, due to -23 not using capital C for Cunningham.

I tried to reply by email to your comments but it went to a no reply box how do i send an email with some information in it.
Even apart from the capitalization issue, the LNABs were not the same:  cunninham-23 lacked the "g" of Cunningham. So, merging from a higher number to a lower number or vice versa was not an issue. It looks like the Cunningham profile was created to fix the typo(s) in the cunninham profile.  Is that correct, Paul?
yes, thats right.
i'll remember correct capitalization next time ,thanks.
