Do You Have Some Errors in Your Family Tree? Discover our Consistency Checker!

Posted by Jean-Yves on Jul 10, 2023

Our consistency checker has been recently updated for greater flexibility and efficiency.

Until now, this option was available from the main menu of the site. It has been moved to your family tree pages where you will have to click “Menu” and “Inconsistencies” to access it.

Two tabs are available:

  • People: This is the list of inconsistencies in your family tree such as individuals whose date of marriage is later than date of death, women whose date of death is before the date of birth of their child, etc.
  • Places: This is the list of places which could not be mapped by our program.

You can click the button “View individual” to check your data and make the correction if needed.

A dropdown list allows you to sort the list by type of inconsistency or by alphabetical order of individuals.

When you have made the correction in your family tree, you can mark the inconsistency as corrected. If you are sure that it’s not an error, you can ignore the inconsistency.

Of course, you can restore an inconsistency at any time so it shows up in the list again.

Don’t wait to discover this new option!

I am new to Geneanet and am just learning to use this service.
I” find it easier to correct mistakes than on Ancestry or in Family Tree Maker where if you get on the wrong track it is difficult to edit
my tree. I am an old man and not very tech savy.

Very good Tool.
