The data conflict below seems to indicate a need to reverse a couple of merges.
Mary and Joan Bittlesgate seem to be sisters, not duplicates
Too late to undo, we can just fix the damage -- and it will end up to the best anyway.
My suggestion is this:
Joan (Mary) Bittlesgate should now be sister Joan - and resolve conflicts accordingly.
Unknown Profile should now become sister Mary - and ensure her profile stats are correct.
The "Mary" profile has 34 managers so I think it will be a no harm, no foul.
I could only find one Biddlesgate (Bodulgate) (Bittlesgate) family with good references. These Biddlesgates are the great-grandparents of Elizabeth Woodville, who is entangled with Edward IV. There are multiple variations of John/Thomas and Mary/Joan. I tried to make the line clear, and to put both names in.
It was all made more complicated by the as yet untangled Somerset line, a cadet branch of the Warwicks. So i did some work there too.
Thanks for bringing this to the curators attention.
They were done without my permission. Plus now the person or persons have taken some of them over and I can not get into them . Just when I though it was safe to go in the water again!!! A shark named Geni Jaws arrived on the Sean! I was wrong to trust you people. Be more careful with info in the future if ever. By the way you can undo merges . I got that fact from another person who was having problems. Took awhile but she got straighten out. I would like this mess fixed At this point I am glad I wrote no really personel info into my more imidiate tree., and I wont either. Europian end is all documented in various places so anyone can find info on these people. . Judy
That's right Carol. Once you are manager of a profile you have to actively relinquish ownership. The only time a manager cannot edit a profile is if a curator has locked it. I don't know of any curator locking profiles more recently than 1800.
Oh yes, private profiles can't be edited outside of a family group. But I don't think anyone can make a public profile private.
Hold on...Those profiles are already on the tree
Working on it
Private User - I believe anybody can make a Public Profile into a Private one simply by editing the Status from Deceased to Living (and saving).
And considering that I do know of Living Folks who are entered on Geni as Deceased and Public - I would say this definitely is sometimes a legitimate action to take. Other times, might be a slip up which can then not be fixed, since the Profile is then not accessible to the person who did it.
