How do I connect an existing profile with another new one?

+3 votes

I've hit a snag here. I am working on building my family tree from transferred gedcom files and am trying to merge a profile with an existing one, of which I am a trusted member and have permission to edit. The site won't allow me to merge it or create a new profile for an ancestor profile who is verified as being correct. Neither I or the person who originally created it can figure out why it won't allow the merge. Pleaes help!

The items in question can be found here:

There are two Prescott profiles that are exactly the same. I've initiated a merge for both of them. I am trying to link the Prescott file with my great-grandfather, Goalman Benton Merritt, who she was married to

The only person that I see on the trusted list for both profiles is Robert Garcia, the profile manager. He would have to approve the merge.

Thanks - we seem to have gotten the profile problem settled.

It looks to me as if Prescott- 371 and Prescott-467 have already been merged. The profile contains both Biographies.

Yes, they are now merged and the problem has been sorted out. Thanks!
