OK...how do I resolve this? I posted it here as it is a SODI profile.
Whichever set of parents I choose (John and Mary, Mary and John, no change) I get a notice that it will split the tree.
Is this because an incorrect profile was merged in?
Here is @William Williams, Signer of the "Declaration of Independence"<William Williams, signer of the "Declaration of Independence">
Birth: April 8, 1731
Death: August 2, 1811 (80)
Son of Rev. Solomon Williams and Mary Williams (Porter)
Husband of Mary Williams (Trumbull)
Father of Solomon Williams, Faith Williams and William Trumbull Williams
Hey...can someone look at this merge?
I am concerned that, of the 15 or so total children, only two are on both trees....???
This one is worrisome, as well. I declined one merge because dates were vague and family members were off...then this one came up.
I think we might have two George Ross's...that or he had a secret life!
This one is going to need a curator to fix....
If you click on his caution triangle on his tree, you can see where his merged parents are really two generations (at least on the father's side). I have no idea how to separate them back out. It looks to me like the children and siblings are ok, but I didn't stack any of them.
Anita, The MP for Robert Morris shows 5 daughters, 2 sons, one named Thomas. There are other children, but locked profiles, and I think are duplicates. I found Robert Morris had 7 children, one named Thomas- but what I found said 5 sons, 2 daughters. I know this isn't real helpful, but I'll keep looking.
Anita, I think I have Gov. Stephen Hopkins with the right parents/grandparents now. I didn't clean up the entire family, but did some. The Gov. has an extra wife I didn't know what to do with, for one thing. His first wife was Sarah Scott, second wife Anne Smith. There's an Anna Arnold on there as his wife, and I don't have a clue who she is (didn't really try to figure it out yet).
Just found this...I added my family member Charles Carroll after years of research back at the start of 2007. I just now saw on my homepage that someone (Tammy Swingle???) added him to the "namesake" project. Not sure what this is but I guess it's good.
@Charles Carroll: Charles Carroll of Carrollton, III, Signer of the Declaration of Independence
http://www.geni.com/projects/Namesakes See under "C". I think it's Carroll County, Maryland that's named after him. Very cool :)
