How can I get an unmerged match completed?

+5 votes

Hi, wikitree newbie here.  I am a bit confused on how to get matches completed.  There are 3 profiles that I think are all the same person (my 4th Great Grandfather).  Two were made into an unmerged match in 2015.  Its my understanding from what I read that I can't complete it.  Should I wait until the first merge is done before flagging the third profile?

Unmerged Match: Philip White (White-18950) and Privacy Level 60 Philip White (White-20061)

Third Profile: White-21529

Hi Jenn, I don't see the third profile. To begin with, that unmerged match was probably set due to conflicting information on the profiles. If you really think that they are the same then you need to remove the Unmerged Match and initiate a new merge.

So that extra redirects aren't caused, you would want to look at all three. Merge one of the extras into the lowest White-#. Once that is completed, merge the other one into the lowest White-#.

Thank you, I didn't want to mess anything up.  I've completed the remove and proposed a new merge.

Any time Jenn smiley  Let us know if you have any other questions!
