Hi : Regarding Robert Ried Carter I did find a Reed Carter that died in the Springhill mining Disaster on 21 Feb 1891 he died due to explosive gas and dust.

On his marriage certificate it states his middle name as Reed. Hope this helps....M.

If you feel there are strong enough reasons to doubt that Sedenius from 1847 in the Norwegian records is William from 1848 in the Canadian records, would a decent solution be to make a research note on the profile about this, and mark the parents as uncertain?

I see it must be Hansen-6982 you had in mind. The reason I suggested the merge is still on the profile in comment form; basically, both profiles had same wife, almost same set of sources, extremely closely corresponding dates, except that one of them was incorrectly named Fredriksen (even the sources on that page called him Hansen). So I suggested merging the incorrectly named profile into the correctly named one.

One of the profiles DID explicitly say Sedinius Vilhelm Hansen ended up on PEI and became William Sylvanus Hansen. Many people rearranged their names upon emigrating, Lenvik is within spitting distance of the far better known Tromsø, and slightly misremembering a birth year is not unheard of. Also, I can find no William born in Tromsø 20 May 1848.

Which merge did you have in mind? Your comment didn't say.
