Hello James, I understand you are upset that Roland de Velville has been disconnected from Henry VII as his son, and certainly when long held genealogical beliefs are challenged this can be upsetting. However the evidence on the profile is firmly of the opinion that there was no such relationship and as part of the WikiTree honour code is about accuracy they have been disconnected.

If as you say on the profile you have evidence that Henry VII recognised Roland as his son, please post it as a comment on the profile, or as a G2G question and then it can be evaluated and the profiles be reconnected. Thank you

Hi James, Several of the duplicates you have created are not a result of you entering the same twice, but are duplicates of an existing profile created by another manager. It is important that you check for existing profiles before creating new ones. If your ancestor already exists on Wikitree then all you need to do is connect up the correct relationship.

If there are any duplicates on my profile then sorry for the mistake. In my defense, when they were entered there was some sort of glitch or slowness of my internet connection. I suppose that I entered it over again. I will avoid this in the future
