Hi Mary, I merged two profiles of which I think you meant them to be set as unmerged matches. Perhaps Petrus Botha marriage twice (or even more as often was the case in those days). Nevertheless, perhaps you could give more background information on whatever you think the case might be (marriage and baptismal records for example). Sincerely, Philip van der Walt-440

Botha-407 and Botha-1328 are not ready to be merged because: Your date of marriage to Catharina does NOT fit with the date of marriage of my Petrus Botha, christened 10 Jun 1731, who married 16 Aug 1772 t0 Anna Catharina van Beulen, christened 4 sep 1746.

Regards, Mary
