On your question about Merging, this is a step by step that we find helpful. We hope you do as well.
In Family Tree, the Possible Duplicates feature may not list all of a person’s duplicate records. If you know the ID number of a duplicate that is not listed, you can use it to merge the records.
Before you start
Obtain the ID number of the record to be merged.
Immediately after the merge and for a short time, an “undo” option is available. It lets you easily unmerge the two records.
