I've been building a large family tree based on multiple download (gedcoms)_ from FamilySearch.


In my trees, I've included the FamilySearch ID number as part of the name.


It would be nice if there was an option to automatically find and merge duplicates based solely on the FamilySearch ID number which is a guaranteed duplicate.

In my experience the FamilySearch ID is not a guaranteed duplicate. That is because FamilySearch is moving target. People are merged, edited and deleted on a continual bases. If you feel they are an exact duplicates then AutoMerge should merge them for you.

I would enjoy being able to copy and paste with RM.
