I would like to delete half of a tree so I can post it separately. I just tried the recommended help suggestion which required me to individually load each member of that part of my gedcom into a new file. It would help immensely if I could select more than one person at a time, or could even select a group with the same last name. Each time I have to scroll down to find the next name--It won't even go back to where it left off. For anyone with a tree of more than 6 people this is a terrible time consuming process! I wish I had never entered my husband's tree with mine.
I also thought I might be able to copy my gedcom and then just delete the other branch, and save the one half, but I cannot find any way to remove people once they are entered.
I agree that something more simple than instructions for 33 steps is needed for this common problem. I recently tried to do the export/import file dance for eliminating duplicates, and it did not work. Don't know yet if it is because I'm using Windows XP and Excel from 2002, or if it is a true software glitch.
Hey, I have a MAC and want to split my tree using online web site. I posted 3-4000 people including my wife's line and now get 1000's of smart matches for her side. PLEASE MAKE THIS EASY TO DO. ONLINE.
