Let's say while doing a search in a cemetery we come across two headstones that look alike. These need to be merged. All of the vital information matches. However, one of these has a period after the "P" this will need to be edited in transcription so they match.
Step #2 & 3
Notice that after we changed both records to match we reloaded the top record and the merge symbol appeared.
Step #4 & 5
After clicking on the merge icon the records will come up. Click merge and give it a moment.
