My sister is her own sibling! Help

Are there two separate profiles for your sister?  If so, they will need to be merged.
I dont know if there are two profiles. She, Julie Campbell "Roo" Gordon is listed as sister of Julie (Gordon) Mitchell. She is her own sister when she married. This can't be right!

She also does not have a mother or at least i cannot add one.

If she is showing with different names (note - we cannot see the profiles of living people), then she has two profiles that will need to be merged.
You can only add relatives to existing profiles (that are not public) if you are on the Trusted List.

Is your sister a member?   Did you create a profile for her?  If she is a member, did she create a profile for herself?

It may be that the best solution would be to send an email to  and explain the situation.

I do not know how to correct this. I do not know how to merge. Can I not delete my sister and start again?

I created all that's on my account.

Send an email to  and explain the situation.

I've sent an email

Hi David, this might help you to initiate a merge:

It's quite simple and because you created both profiles, it shouldn't be a problem at all.

Also some more info on the process:

 I hope this helps.  It's a valuable skill to learn, David.  Best of luck.
