Hello,

I have a couple listed as the same ID Number, how do I fix this ?

It reads as the husbands name twice instead of reading, as husband and wife.

Thanks,

Jenna.

The husband needs his own profile and edit the profile by clicking edit and correct his info then adding his wife in her own profile by clicking add spouse at right side of his profile edit tab. Please post the profile(s) ID so we can check them and see exactly what needs to be done. Thanks.

Confusing family.  Husband and wife both called Christian.

I'd work from the charts and make them match.

You do have two Alice profiles.  In this case I wouldn't bother merging them, just change one of them to be Clifford.

Now you've got them both as the wife instead ;-)

I suggest you leave Christian-2048 to be Alice Gertrude - she WAS born a Christian, so the last name at birth is correct. She does need to be connected to their common daughter (Christian-2042)

Christian-2047 needs to be changed to Clifford Thomas - no need to retain the Anonymous. He also needs a gender change (there IS a toggle for that). His last name at birth is also, correctly Christian, which is lucky - no need for an awkward change there. I guess he also has other dates of birth and death. It's all a bit fiddly, but no disaster.

I suggest you leave Christian-2047 as the wife/mother and edit Christian-2048 to represent the husband/father. Then go to the daughter's edit page and detach her father (currently Christian-2047). Finally, attach Christian-2048 as the father. You should be able to connect the husband-wife as well when you attach the new father's ID.
