Merging Family Tree entries with other Family Trees

Merging Family Tree entries with other Family Trees

Is such a thing possible. I have found up to 17 different family trees with the same people listed. It would be nice if you find someone with a tree that is related to you that you could bulk transfer the data or something

any ideas?
thanks

You should export one tree as a GEDCOM file. Choose the one with the least amount of photos attached, since they have to be entered manually.
Open the other tree and then select Import GEDCOM.
Answer Yes, you want to end the current, open project.
Select Import into latest project, the two trees are (crudely) merged. Duplicates have to be removed manually, photos re-entered.

This open source project: http://gdbi.sourceforge.net/ is said to work on a smarter match/merge function.
