Is there a way to see the previous changes of a merged profile?

+5 votes
When two profiles are merged, the remaining profile only has its change history, but there's no way to see the change history of the other.

Is there a way that I haven't discovered yet?

My sister created a new profile for herself when she joined, and we've merged them together, but it appears we've lost the change history for the profile she had.

final profile: Wheeler-10611

other profile: Wheeler-10855
WikiTree profile: Kathy LeMay

In the Change Log, look for the line that says "Merged Wheeler-10855 into Wheeler-10611" and click on Wheeler-10855.

Ha. That's it, thanks!

Not obvious though. I thought it was going to redirect back to the other profile (because I thought I tried it already).

Oh, here it is: (in the section "Merged person...")
I used to think it didn't work.  If you click on the bottom line, it does redirect back.

I read that. It mentions a link. But that link doesn't exist (that I can find, yet).

edit: Sorry, my response was confusing. I meant the old profile link to click on (referenced on the Changes page). Nothing wrong with the Merging link (except it doesn't answer my question)
