I believe that Bridget (Trask Connaught Connor) Parkman Eleveth (Trask-265) & (Connaught_aka_Conner_aka_Trask-2) are actually Bridget Unknown and should be merged into one as Bridget Unknown, in keeping with policy concerning Great Migration series. Please see the top of Bridget's bio section. Objections?
