Any internal smart match feature?

Hi,

before posting to the "feature requests" area, can anybody tell me if "internal" smart matches are somehow available?

I mean, a way to detect and identify double entries in the same tree, which happens, when dealing with thousands of people.

Thanks!

Hi Fabio,

This kind of 'tree internal' Smart Matches isn't available. The possible list of Matches, I mean all the matches could be exorbitant long.

The feature of 'Check for duplicates' isn't available on the online family site, but is part of the Family Tree Builder (aka FTB).

Best regards

Great news, thanks. Hadn't been using FTB since a long time, I was fine with the online tree, but now I do have a reason to go back to FTB...

Hi Fabio,

Allow me the question, how long is a long time ago ?

It's just a small tip:

Take care with the FTB. Make a backup (GEDCOM download from Your website) of Your hard worked tree. After installing the newest version of FTB, check the preferences first !

I always turn of automatic synch. I want the control of the synch process Cool

Best regards

Years, for sure. 

I'll do as you suggest, for sure I don't want to lose my work! In the end, I'm just looking for duplicates: the online version is fine for me for all but this small feature... 

 Thanks again
