I edited this profile, so we could see info specifically about Ralph. The other info about relatives can be moved to their profiles (if it's not already there). Image citations were put in the comment area of the particular image.

All past data can be retrieved from "changes," if needed. ... And duplicate profiles can now be merged, or recycled for use elsewhere.

De Eure-1 and Eure-63 are not ready to be merged because: There seems to be a bit of confusion with regard to De Eure-1. The Eures are a very difficult family to follow. Please refer to Richardson's Royal Ancestry, Vol. II, pages 523-530. It has greater detail and explanation for all the twists and turns of this family. The eye should be on the quality of the research, not how quickly we can merge profiles. Go more slowly, take your time in working with these profiles. Lynden Raber Rodriguez

De Eure-1 and Eure-63 appear to represent the same person because: He married both wives, but both sets of parents are wrong. Father is Eure-78.
