Duplicate Names

Hi Everyone!

Has anyone else found that they have duplicates of the same person when adding names to their family tree?
I would find it most useful if there was the facility on ancestry to alert when a same name is added ie "This name already appears in your tree - please compare" in a similar format to the ancestry trees comparison window
This would have two advantages,
1. Keep the tree tidy
2. Alert if there is a family link ie if the families are inter related on more than one level

Any further thoughts?
