Hi,  I have now linked the siblings of the first family to my Grandfather Wouter Johannes Du Preez.  On adding the one brother it turned out Poenie (Du Preez 1678) had a profile, but when it merged it states he is a half brother which is incorrect this is the original family of 5 Siblings according to the Mother's death certificate. Thanks

Hi Michelle

Look at the mothers profile = Duplicate  mothers  - with different profiles, will show a half sibling. 

The half sibling is very useful because it indicates that something is wrong if you know different  - a sort of little error report all on its ownwink

First the mothers has to be merged and then after that the duplicate sons must be merged and all will be well again. 

Just remember to first do the mothers 

Please ask if you need help.  I am just an e-mail away. smiley
