What is the Consensus Page in online Smart Matches™?

The new Consensus Page (view example screenshot here) aggregates data from all Smart Matches™ – presenting the big picture for each person. The Consensus lets you skip doing many one-on-one comparisons with individual family trees, and fill in missing information about relatives more quickly and with more confidence.

It conveniently displays a summary of the different name spellings, birth and death dates and places, marriage info, etc., for any particular relative, indicating the number of times each piece of information has been used in other family trees.

You can then copy the most commonly used data as you see fit directly into your own family tree, complete with photos of your choice, and optionally add a source citation on the copied data linking back to the original family tree. Please note that this option is only available for trees that were created online, not published from Family Tree Builder.

You can also easily confirm all of the matches for that individual.

To view the consensus page for an individual, go to the match, and click on ‘Review match’.
Below the match is a link to the consensus page for all of the matches for that individual.
