How to separate incorrectly linked person record?
I recently traced back to a family member and had an existing match found. While I was initially pleased it turns out that this existing person record does contain data referring to my ancestor but has also been erroneously linked with historical records for another person.
I don't want to tread on anyone's toes by just editing the existing record but I don't know what the etiquette or process here should be. Ideally, I would like to simply "split off" a new record, pick the relevant data to copy across and just leave a tag/note on the existing person that I think there is an error. Any advice on how to approach this from more experienced users of the site?
