I’m frustrated

What to do!

My family records are so filled with duplicate information that I can not even compile the ones I know to be the same. Is there anyway to make it where info entered is forced to check for duplicates? We all need to be more diligent in entering our info. I just don't know how to get the files cleaned up and to fix the problem of entering info over and over again. Makes for alot of Temple work being done over and over. So sad....

  • It is sad, and the only remedy for all those duplicates is "one at a time". We are no longer accepting GEDCOMs, so once you get through the process you should not see the great numbers of duplicates. Maybe two family members will add the same person but it won't happen often.
