Hi,
I just started to build up my family tree and found out that another Geneanet user has common family member which I would like to connect to instead of creating the same members again.

can anyone help with this ?

regards

Unfortunately, you can't do it. You must add the same individuals to your family tree.

would it be possible to add the match info in one go instead of having to enter details manually?

Not actually.

This is a feature you should really add to make the whole process of building a family tree less a hassle. If people share the same ancestry, it would make sense to give them the possibility of connecting it to an already existing tree (upon acceptance from the original family tree owner, of course). It's almost 2019 for God's sake, not 1995.

Can't agree more. Found two distinct users here who each have built a huge tree for each one of my parents, but those trees are just not connected. Connecting them would complete the puzzle. I guess there are therefore many trees out there that just stay disconnected due to this lacking feature.

I agree. I came on this site as I found my husband's family listed twice in two separate HUGE trees. Tried linking them together as I assumed it was a basic function of this site but seems impossible..

I know that this is a feature the Ancestry.com has. I certainly makes linking familiar members into ones tree simpler with out having to have 2 separate windows open in order to transfer that data.
