Can some one explain what it exactly mean to "merge" two people? Thanks. --JoelM 19:47, 25 May 2007 (EDT)

Sometimes, during your genealogical search, you will find some duplicate person (double input or importation of another data). GRAMPS helps you to merge it, by generating one person with selected data.

I think JoeM wants to know how to merge two people (as I did when I found this). The answer is to use the menu item:

Tools->Analysis and Exploration->Database Processing->Find Possible Duplicate People

When this tools finds a possible duplicated person, you can then select to compare the persons details, having compared these, you can then select the options 'Merge and Close' or 'Merge and Edit' or 'Cancel'. Dnwilson 21:09, 25 January 2009 (UTC)
