Legler-123 and Legler-43 appear to represent the same person because: Victor, we need to merge these two profiles because they are duplicates. Your Adolph will automatically stay with the right father, so none of your ancestral lines will be broken. Once they are merged, I will removed my name as one of the profile managers and you can be fully responsible for him. Let me know if you have any questions.
