I have several individuals who have two sets of parents listed. The parents have the correct names, but they have two different numbers after them, as if the individual had two completely different sets of parents with the same name. How do I go about merging these two sets of parents? Please help.

Write down the numbers. Right-click upon one of the spouses and choose Manual Merge. A window will open with this person as Primary. Click the Select Duplicate person button and navigate to / choose the other same-named spouse listed. Swap, edit and merge as desired. Same for other gender. Children (or Parents) may also need merge attention.
