The way I do this is:

I disconnect the parents of one of the duplicates (preferably the one with the least available information).

Then I add the new parents (the parents of the dupliacate enrty) to this person, so that under these parents there are now two entries for the same person.

Then I check the information in both entries to be able to verify and correct, or add missing information from the second entry.

Then I simply delete the double entry. You do that by selecting the entry that you want to delete and just press the keyboard 'Delete' button.

 That is all for me!
