Compare multiple entries and delete duplicates

Posted: 15 Apr 2010 5:57PM GMT
Classification: Query
ANCESTRY has an extremely cumbersome method to compare duplicates of people in our trees. It takes me about 5 minutes to review each of, say, 3 duplications and delete the two with the least information. And I have many duplicates or possible duplicates - granted, some are my fault in my newbie zealousness and some result from ANCESTRY's methods for adding fromtheir hints.
Has anyone figures out a way around their system and been able to compare three or four duplicate names/birthdays to quickly determine which can be safely removed?
I discovered how easy it is on MyFamily Tree and am jealous of their feature but don't want to make my corrections over there and bring a new GED file into ANSESTRY.
THANKS!!!!!
