Can some one explain what it exactly mean to "merge" two people? Thanks. --[[User:JoelM|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 process is similar to [[Merging Places]]
The process is to:
  1. Switch to the People View.
  2. Select the first Person by clicking on it.
  3. Select the second Person by holding down the Control key while clicking on it. This will select two places.
  4. Select 'Fast Merge' or the 'Compare and Perge' menu item from the Edit Menu.
2. Another way 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'. [[User:Dnwilson|Dnwilson]] 21:09, 25 January 2009 (UTC)
