Knight-6036 and Knight-3988 appear to represent the same person because: Dominic - in order to merge the profiles I need to go through this step - I can then get an Admin to do it for you. As discussed, I'll keep your more specific birth info & retain the 1931 death info from mine. Cheers! Mark Rogers
