Thanks Cari for the William Walter Richards merge request. It has been done. You've also motivated me to list the names of my nine aunts and uncles that Bill and Ettie had.

Sincerely, Richard

Hi Cari, I agree! Hunter-11631 and Hunter-3741 appear to represent the same person because. I've suggested a merge. -Allison

I don't know how to do the merge but we do have two family tree's going for the Wilson's. I'm sure it is my fault as I'm new to Wiki tree and I always assume the blame. I don't know how to merge them. You pointed it out to me. Mine has more info and attachments that I don't want to loose.

Hi Cari,

The Wilson merges you proposed aren't going to be completed unless the privacy level is set to open. The manager David Wilson was last logged in on 26 Jan 2015 and because of the privacy level I can't merge them even if they are in default mode unless he approves them which isn't likely to happen.

So we will need someone from the leadership to open them up.

Also the parents are similar but not the same.

Hi Cari, On the Wilson merges for the one for George please use the one with the photo. I will get it straightened. I'm not sure why it went that way. Celia's went fine. I have the Wilson book and more photos. Not a lot of time. I appreciate you finding this and doing this. He is my mother's Grandfather on her mother's side. You are wonderful for putting time into this!

Cari, do you have an interest in Oosteroom-22, for which you proposed a merge? I found a third profile for him (all 3 were unsourced) and I've added some sourced content. I think the LNAB should be Oostrum (based on a record), but I wonder if any of his family members have sources I haven't seen.
