While working on the family of William Palmer Sr., and the widow he left behind (who married2 widower Robert Paddock), I attempted to find existing profiles for him, and used both the search icon on the profile page and Find Matches under find. Both avenues resulted in no match found.
But then, as I'm adding his children, manually, I found THEM through the find match that comes up after entering someone manually, and through them, found multiple Robert Paddocks (130, 161, 306)! So why didn't any of those three show up when I did a Find Match?
I do see that there is a difference of 20-some years in birth dates, but this has never stopped Find Match before-- I often get matches that are 200 years different in birth dates.
Any ideas? You all know I love merging, but not if I don't have to. ;-)
