I am wanting to make this merge:

https://www.wikitree.com/index.php?title=Special:MergePerson&user1_name=Dunis-4&user2_name=Denis-134&action=compare

but which spelling to use as the baptism has not been found. PRDH uses both Denis and Dunis as standard names though Denis is much more common.

The Acadian project uses Denys, but I don't know which line this actually is. Any suggestions?

suggest you go with Denis, we know for a fact that there are Denys/Denis ancestors who settled in Acadie, presumably he is among their descendants although I haven't checked that.  Dunis appears on children's marriages in Carleton, all within a few years of each other and from what I can see, all done by the same priest.  Might have been his error which he repeated, phonetically they are not very different.

The wife's funeral in 1816 uses Denis

lol, close the question, that way it won't come up again.
I don’t see a way to close the question. Perhaps because I did not ask this question. Excellent tip and I will keep that in mind for my future questions. Thank you as always Danielle!
lol, indeed, Dawn asked it.  My bad for not seeing that.
