Van Lent-19 and Lent-810 are both project protected profiles seemingly representing the same person, but they are both PPP'ed  they can't be merged into each other. Father's name is listed as "Lent."

Beryl Meehan found and added a baptism record that confirmed this man's LNAB as "Lent" (thanks, Beryl!) and I changed the PPP settings and completed the merge.

Arborists and would-be arborists sometimes seem more eager to complete a merge than to do the research to determine the appropriate LNAB, but it's not a good idea to arbitrarily select an LNAB to merge to. The last names of individual New Netherland people can't always be predicted from the names of other family members, and not nearly all New Netherland names start with "van." This is why the project's Naming Convention emphasizes that names should be determined from actual records (to the extent possible), and why we PPP profiles like these in hopes of getting the profile managers to find reliable sources. See Project:New Netherland Settlers for details of the naming conventions.

David, I went to remove the PPP from Van Lent, but I see there is a question as to the proper LNAB.  Since I am not familiar with this line, I'll leave it to a NNS leader . . .

Given Dutch names it probably should be van Lent, but his father's listed last name was "Lent."
