I assume that I am just having a dense morning, but I’m confused about which relationship designator to use for some authority records I am creating. I have a case of Corporate Body A and Corporate Body B who merged to form Corporate Body C. Corporate Body C is the “product of merger,” but are Corporate body A and Corporate Body B “component of merger” or “merge” relationships? The definitions follow.
component of merger A corporate body that formed the other corporate body by merging with one or more other corporate bodies.
mergee A corporate body that merged with the other corporate body to form a third.
Thanks for the help in explaining this, clearly I need more coffee,
