I set up this profile and inadvertently saved it without noticing that I had missed a digit from the year of birth.  It should be 1760.  It went into the system as 176.  Now I cannot edit the profile.  Can I ask a kind person to make the correction?  Thanks.

I'm not pre-1500-badged, but I edited the question to attract the attention of somebody who is.

I've changed the birth year per your request but that creates an error as he is now born before his father.

Thanks for trying!
You should be able to edit it now and fix the problems.
I also have proposed a merge for the duplicate profile created.
I have merged the profiles.  All seems okay now. Thanks.
