Is there any reason to block this merge?

There's an unmerged match of Manners-14 and Manners-51 that's been around for a while. I'm not seeing reason not to merge them. Manners-51 has no parents, or children but does have the same spouse.

Any thoughts? PM for Manners-14 wants more data, which given there are no conflicts, seems odd.

This is ridiculous. Manners-51 has no sources. They both have the same profile for the husband.

My recommendation: Change the birth date on Manners-51 to match Manners-14. That way EVERYTHING is literally the same data. Then resubmit the merge request.

For some reason there are some people who insist on everything being an exact match in order to merge.

I would generally concur with this answer. As the other provides no sources. And I can find none to verify it's identity I reckon it safe to conclude that they're indeed the same person.

Great find Monica.
Thanks, I'll do that, expect the PM is just being cautious.
