I have a question about the resultant mergers that will proceed from a currently pending merger.

I have a pending merger of Kendrick-720 and Kendrick-1189.  This will require/enable the merger of several generations of ancestors.  (The manager of Kendrick-1189 has not responded yet, but I understand the merger can proceed after 30 days).  My concern is the ancestor mergers.  These go back several generations.  Moreover, the Kendrick-1189 tree goes back further than Kendrick-720.  However, while some of "my" profiles are a bit sketchy in the "colonial" era, as far as I have looked the Kendrick-1189 profiles are all unsourced.  I would appreciate comments/pointers on how to proceed.

Hi Dwight,

First I would suggest, if you have not already, that you take a look at the information on merging in the Help Index, starting with this page about Merging.  You should also keep in mind that it is best to start merges with the oldest ancestor known to be duplicated. If you start with the merge for Darlene Oatfield, you will have to choose one set of parents and the others will be set adrift. So these parents need to be merged and their parents if necessary, etc., before you merge Darlene.

It does not matter if one profile has sources and the other being merged does not. The biographies of the two will be merged into the final profile and all sources will be maintained.

Anytime you have any questions, just let us know. Someone will be able to help you.
