DeGrey-10 and Grey-524 appear to represent the same person because: Hello, these profiles have been set as unmerged matches for about two years. Can they be merged together on the basis of the similar data in both profiles. Would suggest LNAB of Grey in accordance with Wikitree guidelines. If you agree with these suggestions, please approve the merger or reject if you don't. Thanks a lot, Leigh
