I have just added a gedcom with 2400 names. I now have to go back and forth finding who is related to who etc before adding them. Why not after all the comparing is done is it not added to your tree. Talk about a long winded way of going about things. It needs to be a simple process or people just wont bother with this project.

Hello Roy, After you have been through the comparison process to ensure you will not be creating duplicates you will be able to add individuals or family groups. If you plan to work with gedcoms in the future I would recommend that you only work with small gedcoms so that the process will seem a little less overwhelming.

Lynda, That's a new one on me. How would you add family groups? All I've seen is adding one person at a time. I haven't seen anything about a group add function.
I just tried that out myself Joyce. I had a mother in my gedcom who matched a profile I had set up previously. When I ran the compare function I was able to add the missing children directly from the compare screen. There was an Add button under each of the children I had not previously created.
Ah, OK, I misunderstood. I thought you meant you could add an entire family group with one button. But thanks for mentioning the Add button on the compare screen, I hadn't really noticed that either. That will help.
