Hird-91 - can someone please explain why all the siblings in this family are shown as half siblings??  They are all the full children of David T Hird and Jessica Nicol??

My grandfather had a second wife but didn't have any children by her??

I fixed the Devina Carr problem by attaching Jessica Nicoll to the profile and set up a merge between Jessica Nicol and Jessica Nicoll.  Only the birth dates of the two Jessica needs to be resolved.

Devina had no mother attached to her and Elasta had Jessica Nicol attached instead of Jessica Nicoll.  Jessica Nicoll had her parents' profiles attached to her; Jessica Nicol did not.

This Jessica Nicol should be Nicol not Nicoll - am sure I looked that up on Scotlands People.  She was born a bit earlier tun you say as well.  She was older than my Great Grandfather.  Lies were told about her age.

Hello Lauraine,

Just add Jessica (Nicoll-401) as the mother of Devina and that's it !

David Hughey already did it for you Lauraine !

The merger of the two Jessica's will keep Elasta from showing up as a half sister.
Outstanding work David !
