Merged profiles show up as half-siblings

+2 votes
Hi there not sure how to fix this- Peirl-16 was merged into Pierl-3, all good, except that when you look at the family list it shows TWO Amelia Peirls, as half-siblings, but when you click on either of them it takes you to Peirl-3.....   IN the Profile Page the half-sister of Peirl-3 has incorrect birth date, but when the merge took place the correct one was chosen.  Also there is an issue with the parentage- on the fathers profile it shows correct number of children but on the mothers it also shows duplicate children,  but because clicking on either takes you to the Peirl-3 profile I dont know how to edit the incorrect details.

Help please?

You are hitting a ghost profile that will go away - I have had that and it is weird for a bit - and just make sure both parents are attached (if known of course) and it will resolve

Scared me to pieces once - merged a person with lots of children and it looked like the kids all had duplicates and I would have to merge them all - but it turned out that it was really ok

Oh good lol...  Its been a bit tricky editing, adding info, cleaning up and merging the profiles because I can't get in touch with the profile manager who added most of the Peirl family members back in 2013, and they don't appear to have been active for the past four years or so. The first Merge I had to wait a month for the profile to open, and since there has been no response from the manager I have started all of the processes to place an Unresponsive Profile Manager Request on the non-active manager's profiles, just need to wait now!

There is a different manager in charge of a couple of the family profiles and she has been helpful so thats a start.
instead of Perel previously Frazier on the mother's current last name, it should be Perel (only) and move Frazier to the Other last name field.
