Merging with intelligence e.g.
- Identify matching information when merging entities
- Remove redundant information
- Let user choose matching entities through point&click

    What's happening to this feature? It's been talked about
    for 4 years now, yet there there's no sign of it coming
    back.

    Hi mchady

    yes, this one has been around for a long time :) There has
    been only major talk about it really in the forum, interest
    seems to be almost non-existing. That's why other higher
    priority items were addressed before this one.

    I consider this to be very important myself as well actually
    .. no developer had time to address it though.

    Cheers
    Nils

  • Hello, everyone.

    I quite often wish for this Feature. Using GenJ for private Research as well as for creating virtual Family Trees for different Stories, i sometimes tend to start a new Tree at one Point with one Person and his/her/its direct Relatives, first, even, if there already is a bigger Tree existing, already. Talking about the virtual Families for those Stories, i often neither know myself, when and how they might connect, until the Stories develop to that Point. ( And, no, i won't publish these Stories to the Public. ;-P )

    Greeting
    Marcus
