Duplicate Search Merge currently allows matching by Ancestral File numbers. This is not the same as FamilySearch ID. When I download additional people from FamilySearch, I download them into a new file, and then merge into my tree. This results in duplicates, but they are linked to the same FamilySearch person. It would be very helpful to match by FamilySearch ID.

Confirming this is on the enhancement request list. 


If you just downloaded them you should be able to use Automatic Merges to merge those individuals.
