merging trees?

I saw someone noting the lack of merging trees-option, and I am glad I am not the only one wanting this.

It's so silly for everyone in the family to have to make a huge tree, when instead one who's already done so could have everyone link to this tree. My uncle is making a big tree and we just assumed we would be able to link it to my user when I created one. But instead I have to make a tree as extensive as he does, incase someone checks out my profile...and my sister and my parents would have to make theirs aswell. Why cant we just do the Smart Match and merge it?

That way it could be merged also between bigger families that are tied through marriage aswell. Arghh! Will this be a feature soon? You'd think it was a given that this was an option. It must be a real spacesaver.

Hi

The user Anderson000 is absolutely right! We offer a very useful merging tool in our software FamilyTreeBuilder.

you can read more about it in this FAQ page:

Can I merge my Smart Matching results from another site?

and indeed as he noticed the SmartMatch feature doesn't display matches from your own tree so merging information from your own tree is not possible.

Best Regards,

If you use the Family Tree builder program you can merge content from some one else's tree into yours.  One thing you don't seem to be able to do is merge content from your own trees.  It seems that Smart Match will not find trees that you yourself create - therefore no merge of content.

 

I recently found a tree with hundreds of my family from Denmark and Sweden on it and had to select only a few key people into my tree.  It was a great find that filled in some interesting parts of the tree dating back to the 1650s.
