I need help to complete a merge between James Forbes of Corsindae (Forbes-4224) and Privacy Level 60 James Forbes of Corsindae (Forbes-2125).  Thank You

Looks like there is a double merge. I'm not sure if this is going to be a problem.
Hm, it looks like you have not approved the merge? It still needs to be approved anyway, and the other profile has no manager.
When I click the approve merge it takes me to ask for help because I am not 1500 certified.  Not sure what else I am suppose to do.  Thanks for the reply
Oh, I understand. I'll just take if from there.

S, I'm sorry, but though the profiles are apparently identical and I could technically complete this merge, I won't do it because of the errors on this bit of genealogy:

- The only source (that I can access) is the weak ThePeerage.com, and even it does not name the parents

- His "parents" are not married together, which is odd (they both have two or three other spouses)

- His birth date is 1496 (while the biographies have 1503 and 1540 !) but his parents were born in 1490.

So, no sources and the data does not add up... It is better to hold off this merge and not make things worse.

There's plenty of information in "The thanage of Fermartyn"
