I have imported another GEDCOM, and though it appears everything was reviewed and confirmed. I cannot complete the merger process. I don't see a second profile for myself.

Hi Jim,

Individual profiles are merged if they're duplicates. Did you second GEDCOM import create any duplicates? If it's not clear just by looking at your Watchlist, you could run FindMatches and limit it to your Watchlist.

The import of the other GEDCOM did produce a lot of duplicates. When I  run FindMatches, limiting it to my Watchlist, there are an incredible number of possible matches, especially with regard to Sullivans. Do I have to reject all of these one by one?
Hi Jim. Sorry for the delay in replying. You do need to reject bad matches individually, if that's what you mean. There is no "bulk reject" feature. If you're asking whether you really need to reject them, it's less clear. You don't need to reject them if you don't think they're easily confused. But if they're close they'll keep coming up for you and others as suggested matches until somebody rejects them.
