Angus is correct that you are not a zombie. You raise some valid points, which are actively being discussed in other public discussions. I suggest you look at active public discussions that discuss merging, and post your valid remarks there rather than here. Or start a new discussion of your own. With a lively title such as "Building factual histories vs spreading empires" or a provocative "I have stopped responding to requests to merge", I guarantee that a lively debate will ensue!
Private User this tree will need to be connected before the zombie script will work. Right now it just just a three generation island floating by itself.
Honestly I can't find out what is going on
Try this: Friedrich Wilhelm IV, King of Prussia
Hi Lori, I killed them I could, these remains.
(It would be easier to post them in groups by manager, maybe like below?)
Managed by Eldon Clark (Geni volunteer curator) ;
Maud de St. Hilaire
William Sawbridge, II
Managed by Cary Stuart Toland ;
Mathilde von Sponheim, duchess of Carinthia
Thibault IV de Blois, II de Champagne

This discussion just popped up for me. My "zombies as you call them were in a GEDCOM file which I imported to Geni from a genealogy program. I am new to Geni so still learning it, but it is obvious that it is not ready for prime time. It does not conform to accepted standards As I tried to merge, I changed whatever I caught, but with over 5000 persons, i am sure some slipped by. I think Geni should either not show living or dead status or at least anyone 4 or 5 generations should be shown as dean
Eldon, this is unfortunately a problem to many of us. It's very good for all to know you will edit zombies as we find them. Thanks you!
Lori, please put the manager as head of your requests (I posted a suggestion above). That way the manager will get alerted too, like Eldon just did.
Reminder: Collaboration Pool is a great help, not only to merge, but also if you are a manager of many zombies. Check it out here:
Noah is running a script on each of the people posted and it not only fixes the person posted but the family members as well (providing they are far enough back to be assumed deceased). It is really great! It saves a ton of time and is a far better use of our time. The way I have been doing things is to post only one or two from each manager in a certain area of the tree, let Noah run the script, and then repeat as necessary. It avoids bombarding him with people that are otherwise fixed by running other scripts. I appreciate your trying to help!!!
@Scott you asked "@Angus Ralph George Wood-Salomon
I noticed that you included a name in a recent post: Ildonsa Gutierrez
Can you tell me why? I got a request this morning to do a merge on that profile.
This profile had four similar profiles, I was able to merge 2 of them , I sent one to you and the last one has a Zombie.
I need someone to fix it.
