Assisstance Required with Ordinance Page in Family Tree

Anne Larsdatter Langledet ID: 27S3-5R5
29 September 1822 – Deceased
This Anne was incorrectly combined in New Family Search with an Anne Larsdatter Eide. This led to a couple of dozen incorrect merges in Family Tree with both that Anne Larsdatter Eide and an Anne Larsdatter Haugen. All three had duplicates which were listed as just Anna Larsdatter. While these records were being mingled and confused, Anne had incorrect parents added and correct parents removed.
To properly evaluate the records for these three women, their husbands, and families required several dozen un-merges, restores, and remerges of the correct duplicates. Anne’s record is now completely untangled with correct information and sources.
However, she is now left with the blue box on her ordinances page which states “This sealing-to-parents ordinance is valid. The parents are not listed either because of privacy or because they do not match the parents listed in Family Tree.” This is posted against her sealing to parents on 9 December 1980 in the Salt Lake Temple.
Since this original sealing took place long before the opening of New Family Search there is a very high probability that this sealing was to her correct parents, Lars Olsen and Anne Jacobsdatter. I have searched through her Change Log for a birth record in which she has been removed from those correct parents that would have been the basis for that sealing but have not been able to find it. I have spent hours on this but there have been so many merges at this point, I am not sure I have found them all.
I do see that she was sealed to duplicates of her parents on 17 April 1985 in the Prove Temple. However, in the interest of having her ordinance page display such that it will not confuse others who view it and in the interest of historical accuracy, I would like to have her ordinance page fixed.
- Please check the Temple Ordinance file for Anne’s sealing to parents on 9 December 1980 in the Salt Lake Temple to determine what parents show for that sealing.
- If those parents are an Lars Olsen and Anne Jacobsdatter, as I am almost certain they will be, please add them back into Family Tree or get her reconnected with them so the sealing record displays correctly. After this is done, I can take care of merging the duplicate parents.
- If those parents are not Lars Olsen and Anne Jacobsdatter, which is highly unlikely, please restore the parents anyway as this could indicate more problems with Anne’s record that I did not identify that I would like to correct.
- Please let me know when the parents represented by the blue box have been reconnected with Anne.
Thank you for your assistance with this matter.
