I noticed another profile of Geo.,aka,"Jorge", Valentine Clapp as Geo. Valentine Klapp with the same data, Birth date, Death date, etc. Wikitree has a campaign to merge duplicate profiles, which you are probably aware of. With the German surnames of the letters "K" and "C" can cause a problem. The Wikitree online help states that the spelling should be as the immigrant would have spelled their name, which I guess would mean that our George Valentine Clapp should have his name changed to Klapp. But that raises another issue, which descendant's profile should the Anglicized and Americanized change from "K" to "C" be done? A lot of the documents of descendants show the "Clapp" spelling. At what point in time, what generation, should the change be made?
