That profile has not been merged so I am assuming you are referring to his father's profile.

The merging of duplicate profiles is never a mistake. You are still the manager of the profile as is the person that created the duplicate. While I am not fond of the current system of adding managers of duplicates to the original profile when merging, there isn't much one can do about it. Unless another profile manager is causing damage to the profile or there is some other serious issue between you, then this shouldn't be a major problem.

If there are issues between you that you cannot resolve, see Problems with Members for help.

This is my grandfather...much closer kin.. Pluys I added the information first.
Marilyn,  your grandfather will be glad to know that more than one person is interested in his life. You will find that as Wikitree is a global tree, more than a couple of people are likely to add info to his profile. This is a good thing as it helps build the story of his life.
