Merging of Isabella Anne (Hurter) du Toit

+5 votes
Hi all!

I am attempting a merge :  Hurter-37 to Hurter-84

Both profiles are for my grandmother,  my only issue comes in with the fact that on Hurter-37 there are many family connections already that I do not have.  I have simple information eg. Where my grandmother was born and the fact that she has about 8 kids and so many grandchildren- all not even loaded yet.  

But her family history is basically filled in on Hurter-37.

Would it be wiser to merge Hurter-84 with Hurter-37 rather?  And then link my mother to that merged profile?

Someone correct me if I’m wrong, but one always merged higher into lower. Then link your mother,
When the other profile manager approves the merge -- or after 30 days (whichever comes first), you'll be able to complete the merge. Biographical data from both profiles can be combined in the final profile.

Hi Gillian,

You are not going to be able to merge these two profiles, because the one has privacy settings. You will have to open up the settings or become manager of both profiles. You will probably get a default approval after 30 days because the other manager has not been around for a few years. As I said, correct the situation with the privacy now or you might trigger another 30 days wait when this 30 days are up.

Always merge into the lower number if the LNAB is the same, else if different, merge into the correct LNAB, irrespective of what the number is.

PS Please remember to add at least the country tag, and/or the South_African_Roots tag to your question as well.
