This fella has to be a bad merge, his brothers and sisters are all 500 years before his time!
Here is a merge which I requested:
One of the things I do when I request a merge is to see who the managers are and to see if they are with geni anymore by going to their manager profiles. So one of the managers is: Unknown, they abandoned their tree and I clicked on Abandoned Tree in their profile and they weren't able to reassign the tree. This was fine.
But on the other manager it said: Gen. Theodore Roosevelt, Jr., Medal of Honor and when I clicked on the profile, it took me to: Gen. Theodore Roosevelt, Jr., Medal of Honor who is a dead man and has a Master Profile.
I find this very interesting.
This (private member) profile is what we call a "claimed historic profile" - he is impossibly married to Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt, 26th President of the USA
I will report as such and go forward with the merge if I can.
I have a deceased child in the tree whose profile I'd like to keep private. But I can't change the status even though I added the profile and I am the manager. Why is that? Can someone help? Boštjan Vrčon
List view is the way to control privacy settings of profiles in your family group.
From the profile view click the link "view all"
This opens up the immediate family list, which is
Then you can use "quick edit"
Alternately from the menus, for all family
Family > lists
Alex Clayton White Can you help here Alex?
Ofir Friedman if this is the case we might try to find someone from his family that is able/willing to join Geni.
Help - I stumbled onto a mess of Amasa Aldriches! First I need someone to complete a couple of merges please:
Captain Amasa Aldrich wa the one that married Urana Paine. I had to do some editing on his profile because someone had confused him with Amasa Aldrich who is the real son of Nathan and Hope Thayer Aldrich.
If someone could MP both Amasa's so they won't be confused again that would be awesome!
I think I have found an incorrect merge but it may be deeper than that, and I can't fix it anyway. Elizabeth White The revision on December 29, 2010 is in error I think and somehow merged this Elizabeth with Elizabeth Fuess (birth surname unknown) but whether this is the cause of the problem or a symptom is out of my skill set.
Private User - Thanks for clearing up those confusions! There were a couple of other branches awaiting merges, too. I also MP'd several generations of Levi's and Amasa's to minimize future mis-connections. Make sure things still look good; if you have info to verify siblings and children, that would be good, too.
Dan Cornett - Thanks a bunch!
