Description of Hint - 563: Wikidata - Possible duplicate by father

Some WikiTree profiles are matched with a profile in WikiData see Space:Wikidata. This error indicate possible duplicate profile on WikiTree. They are derived from WikiData data. I am using father relation from Wikidata and if father has WikitreeID on wikidata it should be the same as father on WikiTree. If it is not, it is reported as this error and this fathers are probably duplicated profiles on WikiTree.

  • WikiDataID of the child

Possible Causes

Duplicate profile on Wikitree.

  • Wrong link to wikidata. Delete or correct the link on Wikidata. If you don't know how or don't want to edit wikidata, write a post in this G2G post and I will correct it. You can also mark error as false error.
  • Error in wikidata. Mark error as false error.
