Many times there are profiles for the same person with different spellings of the last name. The name may have been spelled several ways in records, and they all show up as profile spellings. An example is Thomas "Miner" "Minor" "Myner" in early America.
Also, I now know that we are supposed to merge De Lastname into Lastname, but here is an example of a problem: Brioquibec-1, which appears to be an incorrect spelling and De Briquebec-1.
What is the protocol for merging profiles of the same person with different spellings? Does number of the profile make any difference, i.e. Myner-2 and Miner-35?
To make it worse, there are wives to be merged, such as Unknown Ann-1, Ann UNKNOWN-12345 and Mrs. Walter [Husband's Name]-47. For wives, I have chosen to merge Ann-1 and Mrs. Ann [Husband's Name]-1 into Ann UNKNOWN-12345, regardless of the larger/smaller profile numbers.
