How do you merge individuals who have read-only parents?
@Sierra Naomi Taylor
Welcome to the "Community.FamilySearch" Forum.
I am just another 'lowly' User/Patron ...
Just in passing ...
We, Users/Patrons, CANNOT "Merge"/"Combine (or, in fact, do ANYTHING), to/with "Read-Only" People.
ONLY, 'FamilySearch', can take action to "Merge"/"Combine (or, in fact, do ANYTHING), to/with "Read-Only" People - "IF' such is considered/deemed necessary/appropriate.
One must advise, of the "Details", of the individuals/persons concerned; where, the matter, will be taken into the workings of 'FamilySearch' "Support", for consideration; and, then, if deemed necessary/appropriate, forwarded on within 'FamilySearch' for the required action.
Here is a "Knowledge Article", in 'FamilySearch':
I hope, that this may help/assist, somewhat.
