Need to look for SPECIFIC matches
Bill Reque
- Close

Haven't got time to plow through thousands of matches in which I have no interest.

Why Can't I simply ask for the matches for a specific person in my dataset? Othwise, this is a useless program.

You can certainly search for specific individuals.

Just change the list view of your matches from Family Tree to Individual.

Family Tree View:

Individual View:

I agree with Bill.  I would like to use Smart matches on MY selected individuals and not get a list of 200 family trees I have no current interest in.

Not sure if this helps but there is a link at the (almost) top left of the screen that  changes the smart matches from family trees to individuals.  They are not in alphabetical order but it helped me to look through 240 individuals rather than the huge numbers of family trees that matched.  Hope this helps some,although I agree that if I can't search for one individual the use of the smart matching is diminished.

Good Luck!

My problem is that other family members have been adding information, so I imported the gedcom files, and now have 2 wives with the same name (I tried attaching one of the repeated files for her), and her family appears 3 times in my main gedcom.    Family Tree Legends allowed me to merge individuals, and I tried doing this last month, but something in My Heritage is blocking my efforts...

 How can I do Smart Matching within my own GedCom???

Thanks in advance..........  :-)
