Thanks Susan.

I'll do it, but basically you note the WikiTree ID of Martha (Fairbairn-630) and go into William's profile to edit his mother, or note William's ID and add him as a child or Martha and Robert (then remove him from Isabella)

Do you think you could please change the privacy settings for the parents of Martha and Isabella HAY nee FAIRBAIRN so that we can merge them in to the existing family of William FAIRBAIRN (Fairbairn-653) and Martha ROGERS (Rogers-9398) Regards Lorna
