Shortcuts to reproducing part of one tree into another???

Shortcuts to reproducing part of one tree into another???

My mother and father both came from closely related ethnicity. At some places in both trees there are points where a certain ancestor or married couple are the same people. If I have one tree almost completed out, is there a way to copy and transfer a whole string of shared individuals to the other side of the tree. (Father and mother are both listed in the same tree).

Can I do this and keep the new relationships correct in the added tree information?

You should merge both trees.

Merge both trees? They are both already the same tree. There are lines in the tree that would be duplicates at a certain point, but the relationship might be off from the father's side and the mother's side.

I don't think I could merge a tree with itself??? I need something where I could highlight and copy part of one line and add it into the line after the connect on the other side just to save me the trouble of adding each name manually.

Then you need to merge the duplicate people in your tree, not add new duplicates.

Makes sense. I'll give that a try. Thank you.
