I am new to Wikitree and I found a match on my family Nathan Melford Williams and the match was on his father William Sims Williams, I requested to be put on the trusted list, and was accepted, but I don't understand how to merge the two, I don't know what the two boxes for the ID#'s mean, what ID numbers do I put in those two boxes to merge our two families?

Hi Dona,

Here's how to find WikiTree IDs: http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/WikiTree_ID

And more on merging: http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Merging

I don't think you need to merge anything.  You only need to connect, and you've done that.

Merging is how we get rid of duplicates.  For instance these two profiles (random example) are the same person

http://www.wikitree.com/index.php?title=Special:MergePerson&user1_name=Mullins-2790&user2_name=Mullins-2426&action=compare

so they need to be merged into one.
