Hi Cynthia.

It looks like this has already been removed.

In the future, you could just e-mail info@wikitree.com about these.

And, by the way, if you can reproduce this problem, please let me know. I'm still unsure how these are being created.

Thanks,

Chris
I think they are the result of a series of merges, but was unable to reproduce it myself - with two simple merges.

Thank you!  for all you do!

When should you remove a pending merge, unmerged match, or rejected match?

Wiki Genealogists will notice "remove" links next to pending merges and matches.

These should be used very sparingly. Removal is almost never appropriate. Removal is for correcting errors. If two profiles don't match, use the reject option instead.

If you remove a match instead of rejecting it, it may appear again as a suggested match or proposed merge in the future.

Also note that when you remove a match there will be no explanation in the Changes page about what happened.
