Hi Philip, nice to meet you.  Good question!

Use the drop-down lists top-right of WikiTree screens; select "Add" then from the list click "Matches & Merges".

On that page there are 2 boxes in which to place the ID#s of the profiles to be merged.  If they have the same Last Name at Birth then the one with the highest number goes on top and the lower number on the bottom.  If they are different Last Names at Birth then the correct one goes on the bottom.

Always click to "compare".  If it all looks right then you can click to merge.  After the merge always edit the biography section to neaten it up.

I see Tom already proposed this merge for you, but knowing how to do it will empower you for the future.

If you need any help don't hesitate to ask.

Cheers!
Thank you, Keith, I just didn't think of that. My bad.
We're a team Tom... you got the job done asap while I informed.  We've got it all covered  Another job well done!

I've proposed a merge, open either of the two profiles, scroll down tothe bottom and find Merges and matches.  on the left find Pending merges.  under that, click on the merge to open it. Since you're PM of both profiles, proceed, following step by step through the merge.

I just want to thank everybody for their help!  As I was typing my question somebody noticed the duplication and offered the merger.  Others gave clear instructions for merging so that, should there be a next time, I know what to do. Again, my heartfelt thanks!
