Odilo (0718-0748), Duke of Bavaria (Agilofing-27): profile says parents unknown, and cites a source. Profile and source say one possible sibling. That one, plus 6 more siblings are connected to the profile, along with a father. Would like to remove the father and the siblings, one of whom is 60 years older. This is a ppp. Please advise.

At the moment the profile for Odilo relies solely on one source of information and that can be a recipe for disaster with these early profiles.  Cawley's Medieval Lands database is a good starting point but because of the way it has been assembled does contain errors.

Another, more reliable, source, Stewart Baldwin's, The Henry Project has Odilo as the probable son of Gottfried, Duke of the Alemannians, with either Gottfried or Odilo's unnamed mother related to, or descended from, the Agilofinger dynasty.  This theory seems to be followed by other sources https://www.deutsche-biographie.de/gnd136731686.html#ndbcontent

If we are to accept this parentage instead of what is currently on WikiTree then it would also mean a change of Last Name at Birth (LNAB) for Odilo.

However my personal preference is that all of this is documented on the profiles concerned and really the removal or reconnection is the very last thing that happens.
