Description of Hint - 563: Wikidata - Possible duplicate by father
Some WikiTree profiles are matched with a profile in 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.
To read more on Wikidata, see Help:Wikidata.

Duplicate profile on Wikitree.
There are 3 possibilities of an error.
- 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.
- Error in wikitree. Merge duplicated profiles and related ones if needed.
There are some exceptions where there is adoption in play or if profiles are not linked correctly to Wikidata. It is possible that also relatives are duplicated, so examine also them.
