Some how I created two profiles with the same ID# for the same person. I cannot merge them since they are the same ID.  I think it was because the profile had an unknown father,I added his correct name , but he still shows up in the family list as an unknown father.  I don't want to do anything else to this profile and make the problem worse. Can you merge the two Otto W Stacey and remove the Unknown father?

You seem to have fixed the problem, or it fixed itself. I found only one profile for Otto Stacey. When I clicked on the Unknown Father link in his bio, it took me to his father, Lawrence Stacey.

Hi Lisa... Welcome to WikiTree!

I did some digging too and saw how your merges went and the history of those profiles.  I also think you are all set now.  It looks like you merged the 2 profiles for Otto then the 2 for Carl.  

Let us know if anything else goes amiss!
Lisa, Good work.  Sometimes the profile needs to reload before you see your changes take place.  You are doing good! Green light is on...you can go!
Thank you for your help.
Thanks. Never thought to reload the page. I'll remember that if I have issues again.
