I have parents with children from other parents of the same names but living in separate counties.

Just in passing ...
So, that we may better, be able to help/assist ...
Question: Was this "Mess", created from a "Merge"/'Combine", of the Parents.
Or, were they just added separately?
As, there would be DIFFERENT actions/requirements, depending on the situation/circumstances.
'Thank You', in advance.
Brett , I think I have resolved the problem I went through a lot of merges etc: and reset them and accepted my own data was incorrect in the first place which meant the parents had more children than I expected. thankyou for your rapid response, I may be back again later. my regards Don
All good ...
Glad to 'hear', that you work it out ...
ps: I once spent a solid, x2 Weeks, "Unravelling", Two (x2) DIFFERENT Families, that had same (or, similar Names), that were incorrectly "Merged"/"Combined"; because, of a Census; and, they ONLY lived, a few "Miles" apart - this was NOT even one; where, the Families, were on DIFFERENT Continents.
Brett Hi again, it would appear my main problem was accepting the fact that the male was a road worker and Steam Roller driver, lived in a mobile home in the late 1700s, so was continually on the move with his family so each census could be in different parts of the country. Only one whole day's frustration for me. Have a good day my regards Don
