Chris, Michael - I don't think I ever was able to merge Kate-18 prior or we wouldn't be having this discussion... although it could be because I've had to import many branches from my large tree independently that I may have tried 2-3 times prior. No longer sure, but thankfully and hopefully everybody is there. I only wish I'd imported the entire tree initially as it would've been far less work overall.
I have to think that if users were given the ability to delete individuals that it would resolve this issue with redirection. Of course this might cause some issues for others, but then WT is all about the honor system anyway. One would merge someone just as readily and screw everything up for the rest anyway.
Also because I've had to do so many merges, the biography sections have grown exponentially. Can we put a filter in place to go through and remove those sections automagically? Similarly, another filter that would break up the middle names after import would be very helpful.
Thanks to all,
