I have an error message... I think, but it won't continue.

After finishing my entries I clicked on ADD SIBLING OF NELLIE ORCELIA (ROWLEY) BEERS, but there was no apparent result except for a change in the tab on the browser (I'm using a MacBook with Chrome) saying "Edit Conflict: Rowley-1473. I have gone over and over the parents and the only other sibling, Nellie Orcelai, and I can't see any conflicts. Rowley-1453 is Phadelia born 1858; her mother Martha (Reynolds-9914) (ca 1840-1905) and father Milo (Rowley-1474) (ca 1839-); her sister Nellie (Rowley-1473) 24 Dec 1877-11 Dec 1960).

Martha could easily have had her first child at 18 or 19 and the last one at 39 or 40. Same for Milo as the father. Why is there an edit conflict?

I don't understand while Phadelia was the last one entered, and yet she appears to have been assigned the lowest Rowley number.


Oops when I enter the number apparently assigned to Phadelia, it turns out is someone else entirely. What is going on?

1473 not 1453.  The thread is attached to somebody else's profile, but you can relink it by clicking on edit.

Phadelia doesn't have an ID yet, but it'll be above 2396.

An Edit Conflict on Nellie should mean that changes to Nellie have been saved since you opened the Nellie tab.  It's a mystery why it should think that, or why it should matter, but in any case, you don't need the Nellie tab, you can close it as soon as you've opened the Add Sibling tab.

It seemed as if WikiTree BLINKED. But in any case, I started over and added her from her father's profile and was successful. Thank you.
