Thank you Eldon. I knew there were 2 sets of parents but i was going to wait until changed form zombies, then fix the connect. You saved me a step.

I object @Eldon Clark to you following @Kimberly Louis Fraser's instructions blindly. Not all profiles she has marked here are zombies. She wrote me at 4:01pm this afternoon then marked the same profile she contacted me about as a zombie on this list. I work and should have been given time to reply. I don't believe this public discussion is fair to active profile managers.

I think you hint at an excellent point, Private User! It would be courteous for the REQUESTOR to first send a message to the profile managers; if one of those managers is unable to respond after a day or two, then post here. On the flip side, though, I don't think it is the Curators' responsibility to ask if the profile managers have been contacted.

Remember, everyone, that if the profile does not have the "Abandoned Tree" option under the Actions button, then at least one of the co-managers has probably been logged into Geni in recent months.

I know it can, at times, be frustrating to wait, but there *is* something of great value to potentially having a 'conversation' with others who are working more directly with the families you are also interested in.

Sometimes, just by asking the question, you may also help someone learn a bit more about how to 'navigate' Geni and re-invigorate their involvement, too.

On the other hand, if the manager has been Reported for "Abandoned Tree", that option is no longer available - so you *don't know* whether they have been on recently or ever will log on again.

If I Report an Abandoned Tree, I leave a note.

Private User I do not follow her instructions blindly. If there are no dates to go by, I go to the tree and try to figure out an age from siblings, spouses or parents. There is no way to tell if managers have been responsive or not.

How long would you wait for a response? I have merge requests that are over 2 years old.

Private User Any curator can tell you he last time someone has been logged on, abandoned tree or not

To be fair to Kimberly Louise Fraser I looked at the profiles she listed in here on Sept 14, I noticed that you made them private in 2012 so I asked her to contact you to get permission to make them public which she did yesterday

The point I am trying to make is she thought they were zombies, she posted it in here 3 days ago, she was told by me they were not zombies but private by me yesterday, she contacted you yesterday.

I just wanted to explain the sequence of events.

So I was not following her instructions blindly either.

Please kill this one (born 1715): Tooma Jüri Peeter

Lauri Kreen

It has to be reported as a claimed historical profile and it seems someone, maybe it was you, who did it, we usually wait for Geni to act on it

William Broadwater - Zombie daughter. Possibly others.

Maven & rvk: both appear to taken care of. rvk: probably some data conflicts and further merges among descendants.

Please be careful with the Merge Requests!
Hoover (Huber) and Good (Guth) are not the same person.
My cousin and I have been working on the Pennsylvania Swiss/German tree for years. Please don't jumble it up.

William Owen "Bill" Irwin

Would you explain what you would like done here?

9/24/2014 at 1:19 PM

The merge can't be correct and I don't know how to separate them. I don't have information on who is the correct father

9/24/2014 at 4:29 PM

William Owen "Bill" Irwin You seperate them by saying they are not the same.

9/24/2014 at 4:57 PM

I did that but when I looked for other merge issues it was still there
