When I have a match, how do I know if all the descendents are matched.

Abraham Tennison II, 1763-1825  ( my 4th great grandfather) is shown as a possible match but none of his children are shown as matches.

 

How do I determine if I should skip the descendents.

 

Thank you

Hi Sandy,  you only merge the main profile.  The children, sibblings, and spouses from both profiles will be included.  You will need to merge them seperately.  When the initial merge goes well.  The subsequent merges tend to be easy.  Try merging all matching profiles first..  Then merge the other profiles.  If you need assistance let me know.  Good luck

From within the GEDMatches report, you should be able to click to open the existing profile on WikiTree. From there you can see if his children already have profiles as well, and determine whether or not they should be skipped in your import.

Thank you for caring about the duplicate problem on WikiTree! :)
