Van der Bijl-18 and Van der Byl-37 appear to represent the same person because: The LNAB for this person is not clear at this stage. Can we please merge the profiles as it is definitely the same person to make working on the profile easier with less confusion. THX.
Van der Byl-17 and Van der Byl-37 appear to represent the same person because: Same names, spouses etc. van der Byl-37 has the more correct spelling of the surname (lower case 'v' in van der Byl)
