MJXM-RR4 & MJ29-MBR The more I look at these two people seem to be the same people, however, I can not make it all out. Help would be appreciated.
We are unable to find these batches. Please make sure you have sent us the correct batch ID numbers.
When we look at these two records, we see
Peder Sorensen • MJXM-RR4
Spouse :Anna Larssdr• MJXM-RRJ
3 children are linked to them, and several Record Hints offered for attachment. As you are probably aware, it is "computer eyes" which local possible matches for Record Hint, there fore human eyes are crucial to confirm that match, or declare it not a match. It is unfortunate there are no dates for Peder Sorensen nor Anna Larssdr. There are already 4 sources attached to his record that you may explore for confirmation of the information
In the case of the other possible duplicate records
Peder Sorensen Casper • MJ29-MBR --1790 – about 1890
Spouse Ane Marie Larsdatter • KHDG-6FD -----1790–Deceased
There are 14 sources attached to this Peder , and again several Records. By examining all of the attached and offered sources, you may be able to determine if these two Peder Sorensens and two Anna Larssdr (or Larsdatter, are the same persons.
If they are a match then you would need to merge them BY ID, as ther in insufficient information for MJXM-RR4 and his spouse for the system to offer a possible duplicate.
You may find the instructions on how to merge by ID in the Help Center, using search term Merge by ID.

The following article from the FamilySearch Help Centre may help you to decide if two records are really the same person:
Hope this helps.
Hi@Tina R Hamilton ,
Working in Scandinavian records can be complicated in different ways than other records. Danish records are good records but like all of the countries of Norway, Sweden, Denmark the people tended to use the same given names over and over which creates questions for those of us doing family history. Since many of the surnames are based on patronymics where the child takes the first name of their father to create their last name, i.e., Johan the son of Peter becomes Johan Peterson, many people have the same names. So, it does happen that married couples can have the same names as other married couples in Denmark.
Sourcing becomes very important to distinguish the different families with the same names. Not only looking closely to names of persons but also to the parishes in which they are married and have their children. The crecords of Peder Sorensen and Peder Sorenen Casper are families that appear to be two separate families in two separate parishes having children at the same time. Those three children that are connected to Peder Sorensen (MJXM-RRA) & wife are born in Sankt Olai parish in Hjorring County. It appears they lived there from 1812-1824.
The three children of Peder Sorensen Casper (MJ29-MBR) & wife were born during the same time period from 1815-1819 in the Frederikshavn parish in Hjorring County. The challenge with this record (MJ29 -MBR) is that the sources include entries from both parishes. So, as you sort through the sources, some of them may need to be transferred to the other Peder Sorensen (MJXM-RRA). In addition, there are no sources that place Peder Sorensen Casper in North Carolina.
You may consider contacting people that are versed in Danish research. There is a group in FS Community called, “Nordic Countries Genealogy Research”. Here is a link to their page if you choose to ask them questions about these Danish names and records:
