Marcia, to more easily and quickly help you, it would be very helpful if you would include the WikiTree profile IDs for these two. I haven't looked yet, but it is conceivable, and very likely, that there are more than one Michael Dunn/Dunne. We need to know which ones you believe to be one and the same.
Hi Jim! Eva did that in her answer (Dunne-691 & Dunne-723).

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Dunne-723 does seem to be the same person as https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Dunne-691

What you do in WikiTree is merge them. Link for doing that is at the bottom left of the page. Dunne-723 should go into Dunne-691.

It should be easy since you are the manager of both.

The direction of the merge needs to go into the correct spelling -- is it Dunn or Dunne?? Is it possible that there could be additional duplicates for this person? If so, the merge needs to go into the profile with the lowest number  for the correct spelling.

Let us know if you need more help.
Julie - they're both Dunne. Dunn was a typo.
Thanks, Liz! I was on my ipad and didn't bother to click through. :-)

Have you tried to just merge the 2 profiles and then correct the finished profile with note about what you did and how you decided they were the same person.

You need to check if there are any other profiles attached to Mike or Michael like children or parents or spouses before you merge.
