I am new and just spent my entire work day on this. Question how do I merge whole family lines from Family search?

Nice meeting you John Atkinson, your name appears in my family tree, well your ancestors did! I just wanted to fill in the Ann 'Unknown" Stockley aka Bagwell, b. 1546-1611. Daughter of Capt. Bagwell and Ann Nicholson, my 12th direct Ancestor married to my 12 Great Grandfather Francis Stockley b 1560-1620. They both were born in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, England. Together they had my 11th Great Grandfather, John Stockley b 1590-? and his brother Francis b. 1595-1656. John arrived 1st to Norhampshire, Accomac Shores, Virginia, later Francis came over. And that is how I came to be! Also, I recently have been entering more ancestors by the names of which you share the same!

Nice talking with you, Sincerely Kim Marie Stokley-105

John. 2 concrete proposals. Feel free to post responses on the G2G threads.

1. concerning De_Praers-8. I propose disconnecting from his supposed son. 2. . I suppose there is no other option than restarting the merge proposal for the third time. If you can see any better way forward, please say so.

John, my apologies for jumping in to edit Wikidata before we formulate a plan. The data constraint violations on Wikidata were brought to my attention after my talk at Wikiconference North America this afternoon, and I wanted to make a start while it was on my mind. Let's talk here:

I entered my grandfather's grandfather as his father. How do I detach and keep both entries?

Hello John,

I am needing some help I took over some orphaned profiles, and my research has found a number of the profiles have incorrect birth names, how do I change them to the birth names that I have researched and appear to be correct. Thanks.


Was pleased to see that posting about the Medieval Project. I have ancestry going back to William the Conqueror documented by my grandmother and great-grandmother in the 1800s and early 1900s. I'm fairly new to do I follow what you and your team members uncover?

Hello Janet,

Take Care, Kim Marie Stokley-105

I have family stories that say we are descended or related to Mary Queen of Scots. Our family is the Willis's or as spelled in the 1500's, Wyllys. I have found with my own research that we are related to Margaret Gascoigne but the search ends there. I need some guidance please

Hi John, I'm talking Ales. Thanks for your comments. Re Euro Aristo, I was just following instructions from Steven. Re the references tag, I am aware of this and will be fixing it. Thank you. I would also let you know that I have ceased to participate from the thon and am withdrawing. Susie
Thank you for your message and the link, it is a learning curve and a conflict of guidance

However that still does not negate the fact you ignored the DO NOT EDIT template and did not contact me, who made the changes first, before reverting them and explaining why the edits needed to change back. Causing me to lose the work I had added by a conflict in editing.

There are over 90 suggestion in relation to nicknames including titles in Surrey alone and having spend several hours today revising a lot of these the data in the link is in conflict with Data Doctor suggestion lists.

I saw your comment on this profile. I found the Ragman Rolls on a different sight. Till I was researching my 18 great grandpa here didn’t even know about them. So neat !!!! Thanks for post on grandpa profile.


Many thanks for your help with my Talmash research. Much appreciated.

Sorry, about the duplicates. I didn't realize that I was creating them. LOL Thank you for fixing it.

Hi John,

Thanks for proposing a merge between Pallars-3 and Pallars-1. If you are pre-1500 certified you'll be able to merge them. I can't do the merge because I'm not certified for that. You're welcome to !

Hi John

A little oversight on my part sorry.

posted by Richard Shelley

I posted this when you were away, you might want to weigh in: Thank you.

John, that can NOT be the reason for the merge rejection? The G2G comment is about the parentage of a Renaud (although the sources quoted seem to be about something else) but concerning that question Wikitree has continued showing both these Renauds with the SAME parents. They are full brothers on Wikitree = SAME parents. BUT, one has Maud as wife, and the other has HER children. Maud is being kept separate from her children. Best would be that we do not use profile management in this way anyway, surely? Best way to communicate any issue is probably not to lay personal claim to profiles? I will also comment on the old G2G item.

John can you please explain the rejected merge below. What is the modern evidence you mentioned on the profile and why is the merge being blocked?
posted by Andrew Lancaster
John there is a rejected merge for Courtenay-435 and Courtenay-57, currently full brothers. You have left a message saying that "modern scholarship" thinks they are two different "French" and "English" people. But there is no reference to what this is about and nothing has been added to any of these articles to distinguish them. This causes a big problem for trying to fix up the very complex family. His son to another wife married her sister, and the Courtenays then had a double claim on the barony of Okehampton, but currently we have one Renaud marrying one sister, and his brother Renaud is father of the Renaud marrying the other sister. I can't find any source which does not demand that we merge those two brothers, but in any case please we can't leave it like this?

Thanks for volunteering for the Musty Dusty team for the 2019 Source-A-Thon. I have created this post to share information about our team. The post can also be used to chat during the thon. See you tomorrow!

Hi John,

I noticed that one of my husband's supposed distant ancestors, Gerard Camville, was orphaned, despite being Project Protected. I'm guessing at one time the EuroAristo project or one of its variants Project locked him but never got added as manager. I adopted the profile as a placeholder so it could find its way into the right hands. A Euroaristo project member just commented on the profile so maybe this is a good time to ask--would one of the EuroAristo projects like to take over as profile manager for him? I'm happy to add whichever project account wants custody. -Sarah

Thanks, John, for your message on my profile page about the Basset thesis that has recently become available. I glanced at it a few days ago. It does not help with the branch of Bassets associated with Sapcote, Leicestershire but it does deal with the family of Alan Basset the Illustrious Man of the Magna Carta, the branch I am working on at the moment.
