When trying to merge the following, I get a message that it is invalid.  What does this mean?  I know, for certain, that the two are the same person, one before marriage and one after marriage.

Elizabeth PARKINS Mayes  PARKINS-133

Elizabeth PARKINS  PARKINS-24

Thank you for your help!

It is because you are using all caps in the names, which does not match Parkins.
