Martin-19325 and Martin-75 appear to represent the same person because: Martin-19325 appears to be a duplicate added from an import. I moved the only child listed (ambroise to Martin-75).

Martin-75 and Martin-23215 appear to represent the same person because: Same dates of birth and death, same spouse.
