The GeneaNet ‘Individual Matches’

Posted by admin on Jan 16, 2015

The GeneaNet ‘Individual Matches’ allows you to automatically search the GeneaNet database for individuals which may match your ancestors.

This powerful feature is reserved for GeneaNet Club Privilege members.

Other GeneaNet members can search for ‘Individual Matches’ in the Archival Records and Indexes but not in the collaborative family trees.

Go to the page of an individual in your Online Family Tree (GeneWeb) then click the ‘Individual Matches’ tab:

This will open a new page with the list of the individuals that may match with your ancestor, as shown below:

If there are too many or not enough search results in the list, you can edit the search criteria:

- Search by name variants
– Search for exact first name or search for first names which contain the one of your ancestor
– Ignore the place
– Change the year range

Click the ‘Archive & Indexes’ box to search for ‘Individual Matches’ in the Archival Records and Indexes:
