First, maybe I should state what I /think/ Count Trees does. I /think/ it finds any group of related people, counts them and shows person #1 and the #people in each group. I get, for example:
George H Jones-1 6779
Hal Am I-5653 128
Ow Wowie-4352 1
Ima Alone-3552 1
Sure enough, the two trees with a count of 1 were isolated individuals, with no relation to anyone else, so I deleted them. Now the tree with 128 has some names that I /think/ are in the larger tree, but would like to be sure, and also, if they aren't related, I'd like to delete them.
Now, I seem to have been able to get the larger tree by starting a new database, and dragging a member of the larger tree to the new database, and select "Everyone in the same tree as".
But when I do the same with a person in the 128-member tree, I get BOTH trees, and a file exactly the same as I'm starting with. Why does the 128-member tree only not come out, like the larger tree did?
I can browse to the 128-tree (in the file with both), and find what looks like an entire tree of duplicates (identical, really), starting with a common ancestor. All, as far as I can see with different IDs. It's easiest to see in the Descendant tab. Now, I could start at the bottom, and delete families, I guess. But what if there's a common link between the two that I don't see? I'll delete people off the other tree too? And if that isn't the case, why can't I simply drag all 128 people out of it? If I can drag them all out, have one file with 6779, one with 128, I can compare all members side-by-side, and make sure everyone is there. I just can't separate the darn things!
