Merging two people
Carol Cole-Ramos
- Close

Someone suggested on this forum suggested merging by hitting "attach".  I cannot find that button.

I have this person with his parents and wife, and then I have

this persons wife with her parents seperately.

I want to merge this couple together without completely having to go through adding each person and then deleting.

Hi Carol:

You currently have that person's wife twice on your tree.  You will need to delete one of them.  It is probably easier to delete the wife of the husband than the daughter of her parents.  Once you have deleted the wife, you need to attach the daughter of the parents to her husband.

How you do this depends on whether you use the on-line version of MyHeritage or whether you use FamilyTreeBuilder (FTB).

In the on-line version, you can click on the "plus" sign underneath the daughter's record and select "attach to an existing person."

In the FTB version, you need to "Edit details" of the daughter, then select from the pull down menu "spouse," and then "attach to an existing person."

Good luck!

OK, I deleted the wife, then I went back and deleted the duplicate husband.

But I cannot find the plus sign.

I found a plus that says add (as in add photo, add etc.) but cannot find the attach.

Thank you for your patience.

Click on the word "add" underneath the space for the picture and you will get a menu which includes "connect to existing person"  in the third position from the top.
