Someone has uploaded and linked irrelevant photos to a few public profiles that are admininstrated by several people, see:
We have a similar problem with nearby profiles.
I cannot find any way of removing this profile photo, which is clearly irrelevant. We have a similar problem with a few nearby profiles in the tree.
Is there any way we can fix this?
I have fixed the parent conflict and added a new Karen Hansdatter to th eparents that was disconnected.
Seem to be a classical error done by someone who does not know that Hansdatter is not a surname meaning that two Karen Hansdatter cold be related.
Hansdatter just means: Daughter of a person named Hans.
Thanks for the response. Presumably some of the other curators have fixed the problem for that profile. Thanks!
Yes, you are correct about the parent conflict. The merge seemed ok for Karen as her spouse and children were ok, and showed that it was the same person.
I believe the source of the parent conflict is that the old "Trondenes Bygdebok" by Trygve Lysaker lists Karens father as Hans Mikkelsen at Halsebø (according to a transcript of the book that I have, I do not have the original book myself)), while the newer book "Folk og Slekt i Trondenes" by Bjørkenes & Jensen (which I own a copy of) lists Karens parents as Hans Karstensen and Beate Henriksdatter.
It would seem that two secondary sources are in contradiction, which may be the source of the parent conflict. Generally I would in this case tend to give the newer publication a high credibility, as several people collaborated to produce this new publication and have used the older one as a starting point.
I started myself some time ago to look into primary sources, but I did not right away find the obvious one source to conclude what I would consider to be correct. I started a line of argumentation using the sources available to me, but I really need to check in more detail some of my notes before I would dare a conclusion myself.
Unless someone provides a ready answer here, I may try to put together some arguments myself. In any case it will take a few days before I can get back on this.
The area is filled with such errors, so if you want to start fixing them please use the "View newarby merge issues" under tha Actions menu on one of the profiles.
Elida Berntine Johnsdatter
That particular profile is set to private, so i cannot see the problem, nor can I see any information to correct. I guess that problem will have to be discussed and resolved by the closer relatives.
Anyway, thanks for the "view nearby merge issues" function. I have seen it earlier, but will use it more often if I see that I can help sorting out issues.
Sorry, - I did not notice that the profile is private (I have family group access to one of the managers), but there is classical parent conflict.
One of the fathers name is Elias, which a person with knowledge of patronymic names would exclude as a father if a Nordic woman's patronymic name is Johnsdatter ;-)
Anyhow, we need all the help we can get in solving such problems, but I have to spend some time in other areas.
Elida Berntine Johnsdatter still have a parent conflict. A man named Elias is obviously not her father since she is named Johnsdatter, but I don't have access to see any details on him to be able to find sources and add a new daughter if this is a bad merge and move eventually children over to her.
Someone with family access and knowledge of the line have to resolve this
Enig i den siste, - må være ett resultat av en feilmerge også da Hans Karstensen bare var gift en gang, og ikke med henne.
