FIRST: The ONLY reason I worked on this is because it was presented as an "Orphan Profile". I opted to do my routine Sunday volunteer duty and tackle the first listed. Now, after finishing the sleuthing and work on this profile, I find that it was not an orphan. Not sure why this would be managed and orphaned at the same time. My apologies to the manager. I left my work but will not be following this profile or the family branch as I am not related in any way.
