Alternatively, if you send me your preferred email address for google groups, I can send you an invitation to join. Thanks for being part of the Arborists. We look forward to you being involved as the Project moves forward. Gillian, co-Leader, Arborists Project
You are quite right about different spellings of names. And it is up to the Profile Managers as to which spelling they wish to have on the merged profile.
The correct spelling is of course how the name is on the birth certificate BUT this in most instances is not available.
So it comes to your judgement and what is most likely to be generally accepted.
And all that is not much help - so my suggestion is to select the spelling you think is correct and make a note in the Biography about the different spellings.
Although it is said that once the merge is completed the LNAB can not be changed, and it does cause problems, but it is possible. And I would seek help and advice before making the change.
I hope this helps and let me know if there is anything else.
All the best Barry
May I ask you a question? You made this comment on Ralph Isaacs: When attempting to complete the merge - Ralphn Isaacks (Isaacks-18) and Ralph Isaacs (Isaacs-290) this warning was encountered. Do not complete this merge unless Isaacs is the correct Last Name at Birth. If Isaacks is correct, click here to reverse the merge. If neither is correct, change the Last Name at Birth on Isaacs-290 before doing the merge. ...Would you please resolve the Last Name at Birth so this merge can be completed. Regards Barry Malcolm Wikitree Arborist.
My question is this: How do you resolve the last name? Early ancestors are found in public docs as "Isaacks" and current relatives use "Isaacs". I know you have encountered this issues before. Please help.
There is actually a whole day and a half left in the Chat no matter where you live :)
We have many Australian members, New Zealand, India, Africa, Europe, etc.
Hope to see you there when you are able. Have a super day!
