First, you can delete any individual from a grouping list by pressing shift+F9, it deletes from list only, does not delete the individual.

The best way is to note the id# of the two individuals you want to combine, go to Grouping, select Empty under Individual Search, click on Search which will give you an empty groupling list. Press F10 for find, enter the id# of the first individual, click Find & Ok to put that person in the list, do the same for the second person. Select the one you want to keep in the list, then go to Utilities/Project/Combine.

Be sure to check the result as you may have to delete some duplicates. Also, you probably want to select the one to keep as the one with the most info, particularly the one with parents, if only one has parents.

Good Luck.
