What I do is go to the bottom of the page of one profile & click "initiate a merge" - especially if the last names are styled/spelled differently, this allows you to clearly see which you're proposing to be merged into which,  When you click initiate a merge,  it will bring up the screen http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Special:MergePerson with one ID already entered. Make sure the second ID is the one you want to keep.

See http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Matching_and_Merging_FAQ for additional links/details.

Cheers,
