Thank you for calling attention to spelling issues. It has been my experience with genealogy and with historical studies of original documents that the farther back in time you go, the less important exact spellings are. For example, in a document written in 16th century England, I found two spellings for the same word in the same paragraph, namely "Kynge" and Kyng" meaning our modern word "King." The main objective regarding reading for people who lived 100 or more years ago was to be able to pronounce the word correctly, regardless of spelling. Now we have specific rules for accepted spellings, but even in English, we in the USA and our cousins in England are "divided" by a common language. This poses a problem when we try to impose modern spelling rules to mergers of profiles that represent individuals who may have been the same person but had their names spelled differently. Even in the 19th century, I have found different spellings for the same family name, e.g. Stilwell, Stillwell, and "Stillwel." Spell checkers really are not helpful here. I don't know what to do about this, or how to select a single spelling based on various factors in profiles. Perhaps one solution is to select one name and list the other spellings in the biography field. If anyone can offer advice based on experience, thank you in advance.
