Advice before merging these pre-1700 Fickling profiles?

Fickling-162 is a duplicate of Fickling-119 (side-by-side comparison) so they should be merged.

Should I contact one of the pre-1700 projects or know about any style guidelines before proceeding?

Or perhaps someone with more WikiTree experience would like to complete the merge? Let me know if you do. Thanks!

Hi John:

Since you appear to manage both profiles you can merge them together, no problem. Just complete the merge proposal and a page will come up with directions. Wiki Tree's Help: Merging explains the process in detail (it actually takes longer to read the guide than perform a merge smiley). If visual aids are more your thing, WikiTree: Merging Profiles on YouTube, while an older demo, shows the basics. 

You will have a chance to preview your merge edits with a preview button - just like those on profiles. I always use it to review merged text. Barring all else, of you mess it up, it can be reversed, so no freak out necessary. Try it and post comment for help if you need more guidance. 

Cheers, kayce
