My gg grandfather is John Newton Frazier and when I was putting in his profile a match came up so I clicked yes that is him. BUT there is all kinds of wrong information associated with it. Wrong parents, siblings, etc. However correct birth and death dates and locations. I think someone has merged 2 people. How can I now separate my John Newton Frazier from this?? Thank you.

Does Frazier-251 compare favorably to your GGGrandfather's familiy?  Hes parents', specifically?

Linda --

Astrid is correct: You need to be sure this is the same John Frazier as your gr gr grandfather.

just had another situation like this the other day where someone was concerned that information about their ancestor was incorrectly represented here on WikiTree, but it ended up being a different person altogether. :-)

 

They have his exact birth date, death date, place of birth and place of death. They even have his twin brother listed as his twin brother. However, his twin brother has different parents!! His twin brother has the correct parents. John Newton Frazier is somehow connected to a different set of parents. Not even sure how they could have done that. Seems to make the whole set up suspect.

Hi Linda, 

I checked the John Frazier that you linked at your message: [http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Frazier-248]. The profile manager of this profile is Edie Anonymous http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Nibling-2. If you think the date s are right but the familymembers are not, I think there are two possibilities. Orrrr there is another John Frazier, with the same birthdate and deathdate, what seems very unlikely but it is possible. Or it is the same person. As this profile is created by a gedcom and no useful sources are added there are no proves this profile is right. 

Please click on the Changes Tab at the John Frazier profile and you will see that this profile is imported by a Robert Wayne in 2011. Then adopted by the next in 2014 and by Edie Anonymous 2 days ago. Please contact Edie Anonymous with a nice and friendly message and ask her if she is family of John as you are and if she is okay if you clean up the profile and add good sources etc. 

I hope that was helpful. 

Oh..... I checked your profile Linda. :) I think you re not able yet to change anything at the profile unless you sign the honor code of WikiTree. [http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Special:Honor_Code] If you like to contribute on other profiles you have to abide that code first. It must be on your starting  NAV page of WikiTree I think.

Kind regards from the Netherlands,

A. 

P.S. If you hit the green frazier tag in your message above you will find more questions about the frazier's. 

Another possibility is this the right (other John Frazier) but the wrong dates were added.
