re: -- perhaps the manager of one is blocking a manager of the other.

2/7/2014 at 9:44 AM

Two managers of the one profile. Perhaps neither one has been on Geni for a few days. Give it time.

Private User Is it OK now?

Thanks Eldon yes I went back in, and it no longer claimed the profiles were in different trees. Allowed to merge the two sisters very simply. But then I still got congratulations in my newsfeed for merging two trees! Very strange.

The issue wasn't blocking. The issue was that Geni was confused that two people with the same parents could be in different trees. Some sort of database corruption? Now resolved - thanks all.

There are two Wendy Zacks. Both she and the person who entered her in Geni seem to be inactive for years.

Judy Shappee The manager of the other profiles was last online in 2011 . It looks like someone has reported as Abandoned Tree.

These merges probably won't happen.

Hi Eldon.....I am not a pro user yet...does this mean i cannot merge. I am not sure how to use the merge...are you able to merge our profiles?

2/9/2014 at 5:16 PM

Atheena M. Romney Hi, you can complete requested merges but not request them. I will be glad to help you with any merge I can.

Hello dear Pro users and Curators.
Could you please merge these 3 profiles of my late father's 2nd cousin. Their personal profile might have not been maintained for quite some time. Thanks.

1) Ahmad Bahrain Idrus
2) Abdul Malek Idrus
3) Norihal Idrus

Aznijar bin Ahmad Yazid #2 and #3 are done. #1 is in separate trees trees but both managers are active.

2/12/2014 at 1:20 AM

Dear brother @Eldon Clark.
Thank you very much!

On #1, guess I have to remind @Ahmad Bahrain Idrus personally then.

Thank you so much!

Does this forum work with private profiles also? I see three private profiles for my wife's aunt. Can we have those merged?

2/14/2014 at 3:14 PM

Eldon Clark (C) That's the problem - the managers are inactive and don't reply to anything. This must be a common problem. So how can the profiles be merged? Thanks for your help!

If the accounts is really abandoned you will find an "Abandoned Tree" entry in their "Actions" menu. Select it and the closes active Geni user will be added as a primary manager, someone who probably will accept your collaboration and merge requests. Its's a click once action and it probably take some time before it is activated again.

Private User Thanks, Bjorn! This is very helpful.

2/15/2014 at 6:13 AM

Judy Shappee When a manager has already been reported as inactive, there is no option to report, If Geni did not find a replacement manager for that persons public profiles, the merges will never happen. Request the merges and then go on.

2/15/2014 at 12:30 PM

FRED BERGMAN Done, you need to give the last one some work.

2/15/2014 at 1:45 PM

@Eldon Clark: the person I am looking at has been inactive since 2011. I tried looking in his Actions, but it was blank. I did not see a way to report him as inactive.

2/15/2014 at 1:56 PM

Judy Shappee That is because he has already been reported and no replacement available. The merges will probably never happen. Just ignore the merges and move on.

I see that you can't merge private profiles, but can you put in a request to the managers of Reuven Degani here to have their profiles merged with my public profile?

2/15/2014 at 8:31 PM

Private User Sometimes you get lucky. There is a data conflict for you to resolve.

Richard Radzinsky Sorry, abandoned tree

2/15/2014 at 10:04 PM

Private User another abandoned tree but this time a replacement manager. It might work.
