Yes that profile is a mess I'll attempt to clean it up a little.

If the sources that are on there don't open, It doesnt make sense keep them but you'll need to add working sources
I can reduce the in line sources (name, birth/death, residence) from 3 listings down to 1.
Pat -- It looks like you and I were editing this at the same time.

I consolidated all of the sources and simplified the biography. I pasted what I ended up with at the bottom of the text box w/ a note. Feel free to use that or whatever you come up with. :-)

Magnus, Great job. that was my direction but I had a husband to feed, laundry to start and puppy to bathe. I'll consolidate the two bios.

I like the look of text in GEDCOM import format ;-)

Sorry Julie! All the green must have distracted me. Great job!

Magnus. Isn't it going to be lonely being in an unsourced tree all by yourself. And you forgot:

Basically, an uncleaned profile after merge means that data from two different profiles were combined together into one.  However, there may be two separate "biography sections," "sources sections," etc.  These need to be combined into one logical unit: one biography, one sources, etc.  Steven did a good job in "cleaning" the profile. The error report usually lists the number of sections that need to be cleaned: 2 or 3 or more duplicate biographies for the very same individual in the very same profile/

Some are easier to clean than others.  Profiles with little information can be cleaned quickly.  Those that have a lot of information spread through several different biographies naturally take longer.

@ Steven - Wow, you did a good job on cleaning this one up! Thanks for helping a new WikiTreer.
Needs plenty of work though to fix the in-network sources what a mess
