Which file/database to use?

11 January 2019 - 03:13 PM

I have ended up with 3+ files/databases for each of the four different family trees plus I've added even more since incorporating Ancestry. I'm finding I've entered information into one or another of the files/databases basically scattering the info. I am so confused!!!!


How do I keep and merge the info from all of them into one main database, one for each family tree? (Does this make sense?)  How to best prevent choosing the wrong database and causing this problem again? Do I delete old rmgc "duplicate" databases?


I've read through the book as well as watched several webinars and this particular problem of mine doesn't seem to be addressed.

(I apologize if I've not explained this very well)
