Research Notes

I have set Theodore and Theodore the Great as an unmerged match because it seems fairly certain they are the same person but neither LNAB seems satisfactory. So there needs to be an agreement on a good LNAB prior to their being merged.Day-1904 12:29, 9 October 2018 (UTC)

All of the children's profiles are doubled. Could they be merged to straighten out the tree?
