Merging a second gedcom into an existing project
Shirley I. Taylor
- Close

It is supposed to be possible according to the help page. But it isn't working as the instructions say it should. Instead I'm getting a pop up saying:  "There is a genealogy project currently open. In order to proceed, it should first be closed".

That's contrary to the instructions - has anyone any advice. Many thanks.

Hi Shirley,

you are trying to merge the gedcom on FTB right?

In which step do you get the pop up?

do you have both of the gedcom on the hard disk or is one from the site?

If you can give more details I would be happy to help.

Lora

Hi Lena,

Both gedcom are on my hard disk with version 3.0.0.820 of FTB. I opened my family tree, then under file I chose, import gedcom, in the first pop-up I selected 'gedcom' and not zip or ftl file type. I then clicked browse and selected the the .ged file. I then clicked next. That's when the popup appeared. Thanks very much.

Hi Shirley,

That's correct, the pop up appears.

Respond to the pop up by saying Yes, thus closing the project that is open.

The next step in the pop up will be Gedcom header information and after that you will have a configuration window, it is at this window that you will see Output and the option to merge rather than creating a new genalogy project.

Hope this helps!

I should have added both gedcom were built on my pc with FTB and neither were built on the website.
