Bligh-185 and Bligh-95 appear to represent the same person because: Hi, been researching the Bligh line, adopted some profiles that fit in that research and find your John Bligh-95 is a match for my John Bligh-185. I added John Blighs mother Mary Westlake and adopted the father Richard Bligh. Propose a merge as they are an obvious duplication. Happy to provide more info for you if you like. Regard Lorraine
