Bourgeois-756 and Bourgeois-3 appear to represent the same person because: This is obviously a duplicate record...same name and date of death. It's important to merge duplicates. If you disagree with a surname spelling of an ancestor as in bayon, bayol - then put the alternate spelling in the also known as .....but please find a way to merge these generations of good Acadians!
