Margarete Mary Smith (1903-c1940) should be merged with Margarete Mary Smith (1903-c1955). They are the same person. I don't know how to do that. Bill H 16:44, 26 April 2009 (UTC)

I don't think there is any magic solution: I think you just edit Margarete Mary Smith (1903-c1955) to contain all the information, and then either redirect Margarete Mary Smith (1903-c1940) to it, or request the deletion of Margarete Mary Smith (1903-c1940). Thurstan 23:13, 26 April 2009 (UTC)
Redirection is much better than deletion, which would allow someone else to recreate the wrong one despite best intentions. — Robin Patterson (Talk) 11:10, 27 April 2009 (UTC)
How do you redirect a page? I will be happy to do it as it was my error that created the two pages. Bill Hunsicker 16:21, 27 April 2009 (UTC)
Just edit the page to contain only:
#REDIRECT [[Margarete Mary Smith (1903-c1955)]]
