my sincere apologies if this has been covered… I don't know how to search 'well' on this site yet.
In the VERY near future I'm hoping to import, and export, some gedcom files into my family tree.
Obviously I want to avoid redundancies. Here is the ONLY way I think I know to do this as of this time; and what I'm hoping for is a BETTER solution. (and frankly, I'm not sure my method will work).
To Import… Import into a NEW file. then delete redundancies except for ONE individual where it all comes together - then import into my full family tree, (my main tree), and then merge that ONE individual I left who is already included. Will this work?
How about exports? I think I know how to create, (mark) a group and export ONLY that group.. will this work for others so they avoid redundancies?
Perhaps another method entirely that hasn't occurred to me?
Thanks for any help… and again, sorry if this has been talked about a gazillion times… I couldn't find it. - JamesJM
