With regard to the previous message: When moving through the Time-Line from latest ancestor to earlier ancestors the tree shows two Walter Tyrell's. Moving through the Time-Line from the earlier to the later ancestor does not show both Walter Tyrell's, and only shows the duped in Walter Tyrell (Name Only).
Hi Sylvan Francis Tyrrel, Jr.
We worked on the incomplete merges in the area of the tree that you mentioned above. Please check it and see if we missed anything.
FYI: the "X removed" means that there is a "mis-match" in the number of "steps up the tree" (to common family/parents) vs. the "steps down the tree".
It is not at all unusual to have people born in nearly the same calendar year be several "generations" apart.
To use a simple example: my mother's second cousin would be my 2nd cousin once removed.
Cecil Stuart Dana, - You report that manager as deceased and let customer support take care of it.
On the managers (and all other profiles) you have a Report menu option in the [Actions] menu in the top right corner of his/hers profile.
As the report option you select "Deceased" and you can also supply more information in the report text, including suggesting who should be the manager of his/hers managed profiles.
Hi, My brother-in-law was invited to geni and when he joined he started his own tree Unknown Profile Eric Newcom and there was already a tree for him to work from Eric Alan Newcom Eric Newcom. (not sure which of this trees he started on June 1, 2012. This caused merger issues on my wife <private> Blair (Newcom) Karen S Blair, HIs wife Samantha Barbara Newcom Samantha Barbara Newcom (Barry) and his children <private> Dailey (Newcom), Private User and Annamarie A Newcom. Eric was asked to Collaborate with me and join the family group, however, even after he claims to have accepted they do not seem to show a connection. He removed the privacy to public which allowed me to merger Karen S Blair, Amber Newcom and Adrew Newcom. To make this long story short there are now 2 profiles for Eric A Newcom and Eric Alan Newcom with his wife Samantha Barbara Newcom (Barry) as duplicates. He said he has tried to merge the file with no success and I also have tried to merge. I do know that Eric Alan Newcom is managed by Duane Glass which at one point in time I was able to collaborate with but it does not seem to be the case now. Can you please give some help or direction to solving the issue.

Jeg er inegn C, og kan lite gjøre med de "forespørslene" jeg får fra GENI om sammenslåing. Det skaper kun medarbeide for meg, og uten mening. I de aller fleste tilfellene er det uaktuelt med sammenslåing. Går det an å reservere seg, uten å melde seg helt ut? Jeg er her på GENI fordi det finnes endel bra, men på kjøpet må jeg ta mye dårlig udokumentert svada.
Kuratorer har ingen bedre tilgang enn deg til å slå sammen profiler. At du som Pro bruker ikke har tilgang skyldes nok at de andre profilene er private og du, - i likhet med kuratorer, må invitere til familiegruppe, om enn midlertidig, for å få slått dem sammen. Er det ett frittstående tre og offentlige profiler må du, - i likhet med kuratorer, invitere til samarbeid.
My second cousin and I want to merge our duplicate profiles. But, even though we have identified each other as family and as collaborators, we are still unable to perform merges, due to the fact that neither one of us currently has a paid "Pro" membership.
The profiles we wish to merge are those of John Rote Unknown Profile, and John Charles Rote John Charles Rote..., and all related profiles.
Thanks for your help, this has been extremely frustrating.
I just sent you a Private Message, Pamela D Lloyd. You need one paying Geni member in the Family Group (at least temporarily) to merge duplicates.
@Del Packer I have been a GENI user for a wee while and found it a successful place to develop "in prvate" a family tree which was great untill there were requests made to me via "moderators" to merge trees. I have never agreed or sent requests (sister-in-law excepted) to anyone. About 12 months or so ago I found I had Great grand relatives who were now their own half brothers my own Grandmother who is also her own half sister etc etc. I have repeatedly asked the person responsible to repair and leave well alone but no avail. I am unable to effect a repair because Geni presumes that MY tree now has other stakeholders. That appears to leave me with no options but to to dismantle the whole project. It appears that GENI assumes to know better.

Delroy Packer, I'm sorry to hear about your frustrations. Can you start by telling us which specific profiles have problems, and what needs to be corrected?
There are duplicates for James Rowe Robinson connected to Maraea (Maria) Robinson as her husband and father of children.
If they are the same person they should be Merged and then the relationships should become listed correctly.
You are a manager of both Profiles for James Robinson, but if you are a 'Basic' user then are unable to merge the profiles, I see that Sandra Jacalyn Haley is a manager for one and a 'Pro' user, can you contact her to do the merges? Your single managed Profile for James is selected as 'Private' so for her to merge them, she will need to be added as manager 'or' your 'Private' setting changed to 'Public' (which can be changed back after the merge is complete).
At some stage, curators will realise that this is a problem affecting many members with New Zealand trees, not an isolated incident. I have pleas for help from seven members in my mail box.
I refer you to http://www.geni.com/discussions/110742
I wish someone would take this seriously. The damage to the tree is increasing on an hourly basis.
A problem that has been created by these "self procreating" merges is how many "extra relatives" that I now have. (Even though they are the same people; some are now there own half-siblings). I also now exceed the number of relatives that I am allowed to have on my tree without being expected to upgrade to " Pro". It couldnt be a deliberate ploy to compell me to upgrade , could it. All I would need to be able to fix my tree is to be able to edit it as before. Before a GENI busy-body thought they new best.
