In Topic: Merge "Fact Type"

15 October 2017 - 07:31 PM

I'm including this here because the two usually happen at the same time when merging or downloading sources through Ancestry.com and other genealogy software linking. I'm sure the same would be true once the merge facts function was enabled and it would be nice if all these collateral issues could be addressed at once.


1. Is it possible to copy all sources used for a person in one action and enter them by the person's name? Ancestry.com definitely does not insert sources by main person's name.

2. Is it possible to automatically delete duplicate sources? When downloading Ancestry.com data or during merge, the software does not recognize this and I've ended up with as many as a dozen of the same source used for a specific fact.


Either of these two functions would be SOOOO helpful.
