I just realized that I merged a father's information with a son's information. Since more than a day has passed since I did this, I can't figure out how to undo my mistake. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hi Beth,

Merges cannot be undone, so you'll need to create a new profile for one of them. Then just change the parent-child and spousal relationships so that the right people are connected to each other, and make sure each of them has the right information, like birth and death dates, etc.

I hope that helps! :)

Thank you so much. Finally figured out that I didn't merge the father and son but had two mothers for one of the sons and had to do a merge that way. Appreciate all the help.
