Posted by admin on Feb 20, 2009

When entering a lot of data or merging a GEDCOM file, you may create some duplicate individuals in your online family tree. See how to delete these duplicates:

Online Family Tree (GeneWeb)

A duplicate record has been created for Susan Leech, spouse of John Baxter.

Click the “Wizard Access” link in the left sidebar then enter your GeneaNet username and password to log on as “Wizard”.

Enter the surname and name of the duplicate individual in the search form, select “first name/name”, then click “OK”.

Both Susan Leech are shown in the search results list.

The first one is the duplicate we want to delete and the second one is the spouse of John Baxter.

Click the first Susan Leech link.

Click the “Update – Nidividual, family, media” link.

Verify that this is the right person (not the spouse of John Baxter) then click the “Delete” link to delete this duplicate.
