Tips & Tricks for merging duplicate family groups or multiple people in a record
Hello all, Do you have any hints or tips on merging family members who are duplicates? It seems that around 2012-2015 FamilySearch created a person ID for each person mentioned in each record for a village that I am researching. For example, if there are 5 children in the family, there are 5 fathers that must be merged and 5 mothers that must be merged (and sometime more of each because of birth AND christening records). Is there any way to do the merge as a group or batched in someway? Doing it one by one I always seem to miss one piece that leads to problems like a weird display in the descendency or in attaching records that's hard to hunt down. Any suggestions beyond the options in the right hand menus (possible duplicates & merge by ID) that I'm currently utilizing would be great! Thanks.
