tree intersections

With a family tree whose branches cross alot........I would find it helpful to put a notation somewhere that tells me this person is already in my tree, on another branch.

IE: Paternal cousin Mary married maternal cousin Ed.

Or maternal great granfathers sister married paternal great grandmothers cousin.

 

I though perhaps a litlle star in the upper left corner would be a good signal of "this person appears elsewhere in your tree"

That happened to me a lot. Fortunately most of the time  I was able to remember when I already had someone on my tree when their name came up again, so I could just use the connect function. Sometimes I then still had duplicates that I had to remove manually. Now each person who shows up in the tree several ways now has a symbol on the bottom where I can view the other line.

Hi Sandra, 

Please see the following post in our FAQ regarding this in your tree in Family Tree Builder:

How do I show one person in two locations in Family Tree Builder?

I was assuming you were talking about the online version, so if you are using FTB this may not apply. If you click the Add sign on the left part of a person's pink/blue card there is an option to connect to an existing person.

It does this in the on-line tree MODERN VIEW.  If you use FTB you have the option to merge these people with the attach/detach function, but this is tricky and you have to be careful.  I don't know if this can be done if you have an on-line tree only.
