Same Person in 2 trees
Thomas Kunetz
- Close

Hi,

I currently have Two trees in my genealogy.

However, some persons (closed family) appear twice in both trees.

Is there a way to only have one person but listed twice in the trees ? It would ease the management of details, photos and such...

 

Thanks.

Tom.

I have the same situation.  Even if I add the person again and her family and the family's family etc, it will and up all duplicated, when it only needs to be linked back to an existing branch.

Help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

There isn’t really a way to merge two people in different trees online. What you can do is merge two family trees. If you are really interested in trying to do that, let me just tell you that is a little complicated for online trees.

Firstly, you will have to export both your family trees to Family Tree Builder. Then you can use the export branch feature and export a specific branch from one family tree and then import in to another tree in the Family Tree Builder software. 

  To do this, go to Family Tree Builder and import the first GEDCOM file (or open your existing family tree project if this is your basis for the merge). Then import the second GEDCOM file, using the ‘File>Import Gedcom’ option in Family Tree Builder. A wizard will open, asking you to select the GEDCOM you wish to import. In the ‘Configuration’ page in this wizard, there is an ‘Output’ section, which gives you an option to merge the new GEDCOM file into the previous project. Choose the Merge option and complete the wizard. Please note, that if there are duplicate people in the two GEDCOM files, they will remain duplicates and will not be consolidated, you will need to delete the duplicates manually. We intend to provide more advanced features for merging GEDCOM files and consolidating duplicates, in the future.

Next time that you have a technical question, please write on our support message boards :)

If you need further assistance. I would be happy to provide it to you.

 Best Regards,

Hello Esther.

 

Thanks for your answer however, this is not what I meant. I do not want to merge two trees, I just would like to have the same person appearing in Two trees.

I understand that this was last updated 5 years ago, but is there any news on this?

Is it possible to link to make the same person appear in two trees on the same site without having to merge the trees?
