Hello: I am waiting for another profile manager to disconnect [Skipwith-58] as a wife of [Markham-528]. Thanks - Bart.

Hello: Please assist me. I need to sort out a LOT of problems from here down and around, and I NEED to start right here, otherwise it will get too confusing. I need these merges:

Merge Markham-528 and Markham-56. Merge Strelly-3 and Strelly-2.

Are you able to do this, or must a pre-1500 person do this ?. If possible, I need to be able to edit say the current John Markham [Markham-528]. Thanks - Bart.

Hello: Please can you put me on your trusted list. I need the co-operation of maybe a dozen profile managers to sort out all the problems in this general region. I am very locked in at the moment. Thanks - Bart.

Hello: I am a MARKHAM researcher. I will be making some changes in links all about this region regards Markham. This region is badly linked all over. Your Alice Morton is the daughter of Margery Langford [Langford-158] John Markham [Markham-528]. I am waiting for [Markham-528] and John Markham [Markham-56] to be merged. I will be writing in the refs sometime once I can get all these problems sorted out. Cheers - Bart.
