Can two FindAGrave references on a profile cause an issue?

On profiles for two sisters I have the FAG memorials for both on both profiles. Now in my "suggestions" file I see suggestions to correct the FAG references in each profile since the birth and death dates in the profiles don't match the memorials. Are multiple FAG memorials in a profile confusing to Wikitree?

It's not the multiple FindAGrave references, it's that one doesn't apply to the person in the profile.  Two options:

  1. Ignore forever the suggestion.
  2. Use the FindAGrave template with the sameas=no switch:  {{FindAGrave|29128622|sameas=no}}

Ken,

I post Find A Grave links of relatives on a profile very frequently..... and yes it shows up in my suggestions.    There's a way to avoid it showing up on your suggestions list by adding an extension to {{FindAGrave|1234567}},  I'll try to relocate it.
