It's been years since I worked on genealogy. However, I got my first taste when my aunt wanted me to fill out an application for the Daughters of the Revolution. She had all the answers, but she wanted me to discover them for myself, and I did! Then college, graduate school, professional development and accreditation, then WORK got in the way. Now, with the passing of my parents, I have become "the elder". (oh my!!) With this new role, an unknown driving force is pushing me down this genealogy path to discover our roots and heritage ... so I can pass it on. Oh how I wished I had started sooner!

I am an energy magnet for animal rescues with no prejudice between canines and felines. I am also a poet, photographer and artist.

Hi R,

In response to your question about doing a merge, give me the duplicate profile ID number and I will propose the merge. You then OK it, and you'll be a manager of the merged profile. (Or you can do it yourself by initiating the merge at the bottom of either profile page. Just add in the duplicate profile ID there. Merge the larger number into the smaller number.)

Thanks for your note, R,

The WikiTree GEDCOMpare process is different from most website. Most websites load everything and then expect members to go back and do the necessary tweaks to conform names, dates, and places. Here at WikiTree, we make your data available for your use in the profile creation step, alleviating the need to type it all, but giving you a chance to make adjustments.

I find that working with a small GEDCOM works best for me as I feel like I've accomplished something when I get to the end. One of our mentors created a tutorial for the GEDCOMpare process that explains how to use it most efficiently.

Let me know if you have any questions after reviewing the tutorial.
