When you merged the two GEDCOMs did you check to see if the XREF fields for the individuals, families and sources had any duplicates?

Normally you can't just append the two GEDCOM files together and get one working GEDCOM.

See if you can find two:

0 @I1@ INDI record in the file.

A GEDCOM validator may not catch duplicate XREF data.
