Is it possible to get Acting credits linked from different acting names who I performed under as many are missing?

I have just joined IMDb as a Producer/Director, as I left being a Actor and saw a Acting credit from Blue Heelers, but back in the earlier days I did other acting under the name of Travis Keyes and appeared in a number of other Television shows and Mini Series. Is it possible to get all these credits and the 2 names together? 

I had to have a 2nd name early in my Acting Career as was in the State Police Force and wasn't immediately allowed to act under my own name.

Greg: Yes, all your credits are supposed to be on the same name page regardless of what name you were working under.

I take it that https://www.imdb.com/name/nm3734348/ is your page under the name Greg Keyes. Please post the link to any other name page where your credits may be listed, and the contributors here can give you step-by-step directions on how to merge the pages.

Thankyou for your prompt and easy to understand reply. 

One other query.  I have quite a number of other roles I did, mainly small in the early days 1970's-1980's that the Television shows are now being released as Classics for collectors, some that have become classic YouTube Comedy links, but as I wasn't the major name regular star, but guest performer, which back then you didn't get a credit or my name credited.  Is there a way this can be rectified whilst I'm still alive.  I have promo stills of the day from the Production Company and they even released one major Skit that made the best of the best of all the Series where I was one of the 3 leads, but wasn't credited?  I have the Series and the Episode.

Greg: Since you have other work where you were credited with your name on screen, you are allowed to submit your uncredited work for listing in IMDb as well, as long as (for an acting appearance) you were clearly visible and identifiable on screen in the original broadcast/release. (I'm assuming that the episodes you worked on are themselves already listed in IMDb. If not, you will have to submit those episodes for listing by going to the series page and clicking "Add episode", then going through the process to submit the episode.)

The policies for uncredited work can be found at https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/filmography-credits/i-worked-on-a-title-but-did-not-receive-a-screen-credit-can-it-be-listed-on-imdb/G3BDEA5Y4U9LP9BW?ref_=helpsrall#

To submit your uncredited work, go to the page for each respective episode which you appeared on and click "Edit page", then submit an entry to the Cast. Submit the Name as Keyes, Greg (II) -- that is, your primary name on IMDb where you are trying to get all your credits on the page.

Make sure to include a Character name or role name such as "Sam" or "Jury Member" -- an uncredited cast member must always have a name or description for their character, not something like "lead", "supporting", "featured", "background", "extra" or "bit-part".

And for any uncredited work, you must include (uncredited) as an Attribute in your listing.

I hope this helps. Good luck!
