You're right and I'm working on it... at least to be accurate, I'm having a break from it and will look at it again with fresh eyes and hopefully 'see the light'.
For starters eliminating what duplicates I can will help clear the area a bit and hopefully make things a little easier. I thought I might post a discussion with links to various profiles.
Kevin Lawrence Hanit I am only collaborating with her, so I can only merge her deceased and public profiles.
These are all done except for this one: http://www.geni.com/profile/compare/6000000002665350731?idx=1
Gene Daniell are you sure these are the same?
Joan de Neville
These are mostly done. I wasn't sure about this one:
Is that one a duplicate? I see two different spouses: Joan Somery and Joan Sutton.
