To what I could read in the notes there is a disputed discrepancy in the name. What I may suggest is continue looking for sources and put it as a unmerged match till the proper name can be found that matches the sources

Hi Michele,

Maybe you can search your email for the notification using the terms "quesnel" and "rejected" to find out who rejected the merge.

It can be argued with nobody, but it can be discussed for collaborative purposes with anyone and everyone.  People can be contacted through their pages or the issue can be debated here in g2g.

I hope this helps :)


I have just looked at Quesnel-6 and Quesnel-149 and the "rejected merge" was changed to "pending merge" so I guess that writing to the profile managers did the trick.  Sorry for the trouble, I am still very new at this (and perhaps also impatient)  and thank everyone involved.

Hi Michele,

It can be a bit confusing at first.

There is also the chance that what you saw notice of was a "rejected match".  Maybe a match was proposed, then someone removed the match to propose the merge.

Anyway, glad it's straight now :)

It's baaaack!  I don't know who rejected the merge but these profiles obviously represent the same person.

I removed the rejected merge and reinitiated a new merge, also for the identical son Antoine.  Good luck!

A general answer is a Project Manager on either of the profiles or someone on the Trusted Lists - with full editing privileges, and also WikiTree leaders.

You might contact either/both managers either on the profile(s) bulletin boards or by private message and express your interest and concerns relating to the two ancestors.  You might also ask, if there is some specific information they are looking for to confirm duplicates, and offer to help locate the related source.
