I too have noticed the repitition of the same suggestions and answers, but in the end nothing is done. How are these duplicates started, and don't tell me it is us, I believe the GEDCOM has a lot to answer for this problem. I wish you would rewrite this conversion program.
And why is the merge duplicates not been installed into the Heritage program yet?, its been going on since your program was released, that was 7 generations ago??
FTM knows how to instal and run this merge duplicates program, why not have a look at it, I know it works very well as I have had to use it quite a few times after merging a gedcom files.
Unfortunately to transfer all the corrected data from FTM I would have to use GEDCOM which then recreates the original program, come on guys lets get this and the other silly problems sorted???
