Was there a merge? People forget that merging a parent combines the families of the merged profiles,  who must then all be merged too.

Thank you Valerie for your assistance. Yes, I am working on merging the siblings as we speak. This has helped me tremendously and will assist me in cleaning up more of my profiles. Thanks again.

Good catch, Ken. I've seen that in a number of families.
