Is it possible to merge one Reunion GEDCOM into another one?
If it is possible to merge two GEDCOMs, how is this done without importing the notes causing the note page to be repeated. FTM used to have the pull-down ini. and nulling it so the notes would not be duplicated. I understand that is no longer possible.

Is it possible to merge two people who are the identical?

HI, yes you can merge gedcoms. I have done it several times, working form laptop to Iphone app. Sometimes it results in duplicates if the names are not EXACT. When you open you Reunion program Look on hte tool bar for the MANUAL icon and click on tht. search for Merge Gedcoms, or just merge and it will tell you how to do it. I run a "Match and Merge" (also expalined in the manual) frequently to make sure I have not entered duplicate people or have a few "orphans" running around in my Files. HTH (Hope this helps) Happy searching!!

Thank you so very much. I am quite pleased with Reunion at first glance. The FTM 2012 files transferred seamlessly into Reunion 9. I will check on the Merging and Matching as you suggest. Thanks again, Cynthia
