The Master Profile system was just started 3 days ago so curators are still in the process of designating and building Master Profiles. They may not all have full and accurate historical information yet, but as we all work on them, they are the ones that should stand as the "One Person One Profile" that Geni is aiming for.
Here's a nice one for a curator
When I try to fix her, she ends up with 2 MALE parents as the only choise even tho there is a female parent listed.
If some one has time this area needs cleaning.
I have posted on the profiles information and link/links.
Here is how the line is listed in the source:
(I) Thomas Reed married Ann, dau. of Thomas Hoo.
(II) Thomas Reed married Mary Stonehouse.
(III) Thomas Reed married Mary, dau. of John Brocket. Children: Thomas, John, James and 2 daughters.
(IV) Thomas Reed married Mary, dau. of Thomas Cornwall. Children: Compton, Edward and three sons believed to be Thomas, William and John.
(V) William Reed married Mary Kendall (she married 2nd Henry Summers) Children: George, Ralph, Justice (called Abigail), Bethia, Israel, Sarah, Rebecca.
(VI) George Reed. (He's Okay)
I would help on this but Geni does not seem to want to work for me on removing some connections and I have family coming. Kira Rachele Jay profiles are in here and they always take a lot of work. I Will check back tonight to see if I can do more.
Carole (Erickson) Pomeroy,Vol. Curator You aren't kidding that it's a mess! I've gotten a good start near the top of the tree.
Also, for anyone in the know: I tried to add her (your) source in two different formats - neither pleasing to me. (Visible from my profile.) I was hoping to go through the article tagging the individuals, thus both attaching the source to the profile and making the material easier to reference while working on it. (I prefer to think of it as efficient rather than lazy!)
However, it seems to have been a failure. (Again, I prefer to think of it as an insufficient Source format rather than my cluelessness!) Any suggestions on this process would be greatly appreciated!
I've attached links to my two different attempts in the case that some of you can't view my profile.
William Douglas, Earl of Angus's wives need to be cleaned up. I tried to merge what profile I had access to, but it threw ambiguous errors at me in the tree view.
Any help would be appreciated.
I'm working on this now but probably won't complete it. I'll do what I can tonight, though. I have a source that quotes these books:

Harald, - "Anund Jacob" and "Emund den gamle" are two different persons - and they are half brothers had separate profile pictures and contained links to wikipedia articles explaining more. May be someone have merged together the mothers Edla and Estrid too?
If you take a closer look in the About Me you will find links to two different Wikipedia articles. Please separate them again. "Emund den gamle" had the red
BTW: If you want to check wikipedia, always look for a national article first. The English wikipedia articles usually contains to many errors about none-English persons.
Eldon, I believe that even if Master Profiles are locked you can still suggest merges by stacking and then it goes to the merge inbox of the curator to complete the merge. At least that's how I understand it. I've received a number of merge requests today for locked profiles and I've completed them. It's very helpful for mergers to do that. This locking just adds a level of protection that ensures that that the merge should not be finalized unless someone approves who has studied the situation well . Does that make sense?
Apparently there may be some kind of mix up or miss merged profiles.
The "About Me" data lists information about a Joan de la Warr, dau. of Roger de la Warr and Eleanor Mowbray, who married Ralph de Willington and Sir Thomas West, the profile name is for a different person and the "Nicknames" have listings for both of these different people.
The profile name, Joan FitzAlan is connected to and is the dau. of John FitzAlan and Eleanor Maltraver, who married William Etchingham/Eychingham, she is also connected to two other spouses, one of which belongs to Joan de la Warr (Thomas West) the other (William de Brian), may or may not be correct for this Joan FitzAlan.
Thomas West that is connected to this Joan FitzAlan is also connected to his correct wife Joan de la Warr.
I am connected through co-management of Reginald West child of Joan and Thomas West, and Thomas Etchingham, Jane Echingham (which may or may not be the correct dau.).
I had profiles for William Echingham and Joan FitzAlan, but they don't seem to be in with them or stacked, don't know where they are.
Carole, I don't have time to take a look at this until maybe tomorrow evening, but it definitely sounds like an area in which several people have been mistakenly merged together. Hopefully I or one of the other curators can attack it soon and try to get it straightened out. Do as much as you can. We just need to decide who she's going to be and then create the best profile for that person, and make sure that the detached links to the wrong relatives get connected to another profile for the other Joan.
Ok here is an example where the daughter and wife is the same in the Master Profile
What do you want us to do in this case??
Here is a pic ..link isn't working.
I would appreciate if one of the curators could take up the tree of Gengis khan. He was one of the most prominent warriors of the middle ages and it is said one out of 200 people from middle Asia are his descendent's.
The tree is a total mess. I dont have the rights/ tools to rectify it but can assist any curator who so desires.
I have another instance where my fingers have acted in opposition to what my brain is telling me. I've mistakenly stacked Elizabeth Staffords, and need someone to unstack them for me:
The issue is the placement of Sir Humphrey Stafford in her immediate family. One profile has him as brother, and another as father. I had meant to mark them as being different profiles for that reason until that issue could be resolved, but fingers betray.
I've noticed a lot of innovations in the merging process recently. Is there anyway that there can be an "Undo" button put on so that we can correct these sorts of mistakes (and avoid generating the inevitable territorial "please don't work on this section of the tree" responses that result)? Or perhaps there already is in place a procedure that I'm not aware of that doesn't involve sending messages like this?
Many apologies, meanwhile.
