Dear curators,

There was been an error in my genealogy data and this person has got wrong parents:

Matts Eliasson Jäntti

I'm unable to delete the relationship link to his wrong parents. Any help would be appreciated.

Which are the right parents Hannu Olavi Heino ?

7/26/2013 at 6:39 AM


I don't think the real parents are in the Geni yet. Not in my tree,anyway.

According to the communion book of Viitasaari parish,Finland, they were:
Elias Jacobsson Jäntti, born 1770 Finland
and his wife
Lisa Påhlsdotter Närhi, born 21 Jul 1781 Finland

I have disconnected him from Elias and Maria Hannu Olavi Heino

7/26/2013 at 8:21 AM

FYI: Matts Eliasson Jäntti has a nice match (albeit a duplicated one) to a MyHeritage tree showing with the SmartMatches; has parents and siblings.

7/26/2013 at 8:58 AM

Thanks, I'll continue from there.

The "wrong" tree is quite ok otherwise. That Elias and Maria also had a child Matts Eliasson Jäntti, born 24 Dec 1801 Pielavesi, FI, but he died at the age of 1y 6mon on 13 May 1803 Kukertais, Pielavesi, FI.

I've found an abandoned user profile (part of the World Tree) who has private profiles in the 1600s blocking merges.
I used the Actions button on the profile intending to Report him as abandoned but there was a ctually an Abandoned Tree optin without any need to use the Report option(?). When i chose this option i then got a red error bar "Unable to find a replacement manager."

Now when i try to Report there is no option for Abandoned Tree(?). So what should i do next?
One action available is Add to Family Group, if i did that would Geni then make me the replacement manager? Or would it just hang up waiting for the other guy to accept an invite to my family?

We could try to make some of the profiles public if that helps.

7/29/2013 at 6:37 PM

Private User, I've PM'd you.

7/29/2013 at 6:38 PM

It would wait for the other guy to accept the invite, which likely wont happen. The Abandoned Tree option will come back in a few days. If you give us a link we can try to make some of the profiles public like Jeff said

7/29/2013 at 7:07 PM

Alex Moes [Moeskoecker] Once you have reported an abandoned tree, you can not report it again. Hopefully Geni will release his unclaimed profiles but you will not know if or when they do with links, curators might be able to make them public.

7/29/2013 at 7:12 PM

I only posted in here because the process seems to have changed.
It used to be Actions>Report>Abandoned but this time around it was Actions>Abandoned.
Jeff's sorted out the initial merge that i was looking at so i'll leave it for now.

Alex Geni added the additional menu item, it will only present when a tree is "reportable." Saves the navigation through the report menu, doesn't solve the problem of "no manager available" ....

Anyone want to take a crack at this dead end? Rodger Watts, a middle class English citizen born 1749 from Wiltshire, wife of Sarah Cunditt. I need the parents.

Matthew Gregory Cox, this isn't a curator-specific request, so you will probably have your best success if you make a dedicated thread just for sorting out his ancestry. Trying using the "Discussions" tab on the profile.

This thread is use for requesting help with things that require the use of curator tools.

7/30/2013 at 3:38 PM

I looked at them but no connections here

Hey, I'm new here and am wondering how or if I can join a family tree, or at the least correct errors made in regards to family members of mine already on here. (Eldon Clark (C) is the person who manages the profiles with errors).
Not very computer literate, so please keep that in mind when answering.

Michael Schick, we should be able to assist with that. I'm going to tag Eldon Clark (C) so he is aware. He's probably the best person to help you get connected into that tree and will likely send you a private message to get things started.

Curator, please assist with pending merges:

Johanne Kirstine Marie Knudsen

Knud Christensen, Grove

Thank you.

8/2/2013 at 8:05 PM

Private User The other profiles are in private trees. You need to contact the managers

OK - I'll do. Thanks.

As far as I can see the pending merge of Johanne Kirstine Marie Knudsen born Madsen (Ladefoged) is not a private profile or tree. Neither her husband Andreas Knudsen.

Private User

Another way to phrase it is

The profiles are public, but the tree is private & UN connected to the "world tree"

I know that because I see the message

"No path found to Johanne Kristine Marie Madsen Ladefoged"

But for your profile I see the message

"You are connected to Johanne Kirstine Marie Knudsen (Madsen (Ladefoged)).
→ How are you related? → Johanne Kirstine Marie Knudsen (Madsen (Ladefoged)) your relative?"


- send a "collaboration request" to the other manager, and if you like, point out how the profiles are a match, and collaborating will bring new cousins to her tree.

Hope this helps.

Ok - thank you.

Can you please help me resolve data conflict issues...

Leslie Vides is an older gentlemen who doesn't visit Geni anymore, as such this merge issue isn't being resolved. It's a very minor issue
See main profile, media tab. His name is spelled Leslie on his marriage certificate.

The following are nickname or capitalization variations and have been outstanding for years, it's unlikely anyone still visits who has the ability to correct it Cohen versus cohen Jeffrey is preferable to Jeff this is my brother, his name is Steven my cousin's name is Robert

This one is logically incorrect on the part of manager Susan Druck. Errors are self evident as per profile (she was born Stern and married Dolinsky)

8/3/2013 at 5:39 AM

Looks like someone already did them for you, Larry Dantus.

8/3/2013 at 5:39 AM
8/3/2013 at 7:24 AM

Wow! you guys are amazing!!!
I realized I have a few more (this is Leslie's wife), Her nickname is Mickie, real name is Miriam, born Brenner (as confirmed by Leslie's marriage certificate in post above) and married to become Vides


as per the logic of her profile page, was born Cook (no E) and married Cooke (with an E)
In addition, her name should be capitalized.

Thanks again!!!

8/3/2013 at 7:40 AM

Larry, I actually *did* approve your first one, but I'm going to revert my changes now that I see it's a claimed profile. Since that is an actual, active Geni user, she has the right to set their name as they see fit. If you would like her to change her profile, you should ask her directly.

For that reason, I will *not* resolve your second data conflict, as that is also for an active Geni user. Again, you should contact her directly to suggest the change.

8/3/2013 at 7:40 AM

* as "she" sees fit, not "they."
