Could you take a look at Totten-323? Her DOB is in the 1870s but her mother's is in the 1920s, so something is wrong. Thank you!

Hi Richard

I received the following notification:

15:02: Richard Parker edited the data for Elizabeth (Smail) Shaffer. (Merged Smail-102 into Snail-3)

I wondered if it is an error. Is her name Smail or Snail - she was merged into a Snail, but in her profile her name is still written with an "m".
