Hello Randall,

If you add "Boughner" to the current last name field of Coral's profile it makes it easier for others to search for her single or married last name. Brett Rutherford

Randall I haven't checked in on WikiTree in awhile (quite) so Just got your message about Coral Irene Crabb who died Aug 1964. Thanks for the wee message you sent along!

Hi Randall, Welcome to WikiTree and thanks for taking the time to look for dupes. I looked at the pending merges you marked in regards to Clerke-103, It looks like Clerke-24 should be the governing profile for this person. The earliest created (lowest numbered) profile usually becomes the final profile, so I took the liberty of removing the pending merges and initiated a merge between Clerke-103 & 24 that you can complete. If I can help you in any way, feel free to ask, Again, welcome. Dan

My focus on family research is Colgan, Crabb, Johnson, Sovereen (to start) I use Family Tree Maker as my database and will be uploading my gedcom once I become familiar with this website. If any of the names I'm researching sounds familiar, let me know. Who knows, maybe we're related!
