Sorry, I don't understand.  I guess I need a really basic answer.  How do I input the requested merge to Salle, when it won't show up as a merge with the last name I have of Sallee?  Do I have to add the possible last name of Salle to get the merge to show?

Vic, to add to Lianne answer, if you need a basic intro see http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Merging and click on the link to watch Paul Bech's video.

Thanks.  I didn't know about the Special Merge screen, where you can input two Wiki-IDs.  I had always approached merges from the Matches menu.

The same way you normally would. The only difference is that here, the direction of the merge depends on which spelling is correct. You want to merge the incorrect spelling into the correct one.
