I, my father, and my grandfather all have the same name and all have IMDB listings. All of our work is combined on one page and is of course fraught with errors.  I am the only surviving Jesse Marcel and wish to try and straighten this problem out...How do I do this?

You can do a name split, you'd be the best person to do it, as you know what credits need to go where:

www.imdb.com/help/show_leaf?namesplit

I'd also recommend you add a little bit of bio describing the relations between the different Jesse Marcel, which will make it difficult for people to merge them back together.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh I thought the name was familiar - you're the Roswell Marcels:

There is also a Jesse Marcel jr listed (your father?), so you can send some of the credits over to that:

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1903834/

And a blank one:

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm5852682/

It might be you can put your credits in there without the need to actual split anything off, you can just edit the credits and point them to the right page/person.
