Can ordinance records be moved from a mixed record to the surviving record?
A record for Burl Edward Barton was entered in 2015. Temple work was done for him, including a Sealing to Parents. Then someone came and turned the record into someone else and did a Sealing to that 2nd person's spouse. (LV53-3BL)
The record for the original Burl Edward is already in Family Tree and the ordinances were completed in 1980. The problem is that the provider of this name, Burl's brother James Earl, changed his story over the years and later said this same brother was actually named Murl Lee. James did not talk about his family of origin, so getting more information was not possible before his death. The family accepted Murl Lee as the name for this brother, and listed his birth in 1888 and death in 1933. (MRKQ-XFL - there is also the family story as a memory on this record.)
I was planning to merge these records, but found that someone else gave the Burl Edward record a wife, changed his birth to 1852 (8 years before this listed father was born) in another country, and then sealed the him and the wife Susan (LV53-QQC) together. There was no merge to make this happen, it was a hostile takover. :) A marriage source was also added to the record, so those people did actually exist, just not in this family.
Since the original ordinances on the original Burl Edward record were for Burl/Murl, can they be moved to the correct Murl record, and the SS left behind for Edward Barton of England and his wife Susan Mary Paull?
(Adding my relationship - this is the grandfather of my dad's first wife. They have asked me to help in the research since so little is known about his family of origin.)
