Rob, I forgot to answer your question - when it is clear that profiles which have been proposed for a merge are not duplicates, you can choose the 'Reject' option, which will mark them as not duplicates and save time for others in the future. There will be a dialog box to fill in so you can point out why they do not match. Look at it as a benefit:)

Hi Rob,

Nothing is a waste of time on WikiTree - whether it is confirming an idea or disproving it or just questioning and asking for more sources. We are all in this together, and the results are helping so many grow their trees!

Apologies if my message seemed too abrupt, I'm just looking for more data/sources on the two Elizabeth Holland profiles. It is possible they are the same person, it just needs more connections.

I am delighted to see you have tested your DNA and have passed the PRe-1700 certification. Clearly you are a serious genealogist, and I appreciate your contributions. (btw, I've made my share of out and out mistakes on proposed merges - it happens to all of us sooner or later with so many details and names.) Thank you for your note,

April Dauenhauer

Please change your privacy level to "Private with Public Family Tree" to allow your Y-DNA results to be associated with your direct paternal line.

Thanks and sincerely, Peter

Very confusing for people to gauge family with common names because when they

traveled to other places they named new towns and after those they left behind.

Hi! I see where you have uploaded your DNA for comparison.  Did you know we have a project for DNA where a lot of great new things are happening?  If you are interested and would like to check it out, go to the FIND link top right of your profile page, select PROJECTS from the drop down box, and then select the link for the DNA project.  It has information listed that might be of interest to you, and feel free to contact any of the members if you would like additional details.

Thank you for joining WikiTree. As a WikiTree Mentor I am available to answer any questions or help solve any issues you may be having. How is your experience with Wikitree going? Our G2G Forum is searchable or you can post a question there.

Do you have Royal Ancestors? They are already here on Wikitree! Rather than create duplicate profiles for them, please contact the EuroAristo Project to discuss connecting your family line to their profiles.

The Help Index is also an important place to find how to do most tasks.

Feel free to ask me via my profile page if you have any questions.

It's a pleasure to welcome you to WikiTree. You now have full access to all the features of WikiTree.

Please add quality sourced information to your profiles which is extremely important. Estimate if you aren't sure about birth or death dates. By doing so you searches will be more productive and helping expand your branches. Also, this aids WikiTree Arborists in finding duplicates. *Most importantly check for duplicates before adding new profiles.* Feel free to contact me if you need any assistance. Thanks for your desire to help us improve our mission! Regards, Michelle
