De Vos-674 and De Vos-4 appear to represent the same person because: Consistent data. Same daughter -- the two profiles for the daughter are already proposed for merging.

Unfortunately, the two profiles for the daughter have different mothers. Profile managers: What's your evidence for this man's marriage?

Hi, These are the same and can be merged no conflicts , thanks !

De Vos-9 and De Vos-4 appear to represent the same person because: This is the oldest paternal ancestor in this chain in need of a merge. No tree conflicts. The data is all saved to the bios. Ignore the after 1695 death, that is bogus on its face value. The children look to me to be the same, and the wife is probably a match, or at the very least, sisters from the same exact family. That will have to be looked at carefully next. Thanks!
