Shouldn't she have a Black Sea Germans Sticker? The family has German roots, not Russian.
I don't know enough about Black Sea sticker, so I had to look it up before I changed it.

Thanks for the note.

Her profile is looking nice. :-}
Hieb-262 and Hieb-160 appear to represent the same person because: Same name, same birth/death dates

Hieb-326 and Hieb-160 appear to represent the same person because: Appears to be the same person
The proposed merge has problems with dates. Hieb-210 wasn't born until after this person died. I don't see any data to indicate they are the same person. Can you tell me what you see that I am missing?
