Doug,

I think that would be a great idea. One thing I have run itno is when I import GEDCOM files from, say, the SSDI site for someone already in my database, I end up with duplicates of things I then have to cleanup and unlink, all for the sake of grabbing a few pieces of info. What would be cool is if when I changed the IND ID in the gedcom to the person's ID in GRAMPS. And when I imported it GRAMPS would see that the ID already existed and add the detail records like birth, death, and sources to the existing user. Is that possible?

Sure, it is possible. We'll have to figure out exactly how that would work (for example, what happens if you already have birth and death events for that person?) but I think that is the type of activity that we'd like to make easier.

BTW, what is SSDI?

Thanks!

Hello,

I don't think there is currently a way that Gramps can help with this issue. However, I think we are headed there. There is a proposal on merging, and I suspect that part of that process could include just the comparison portion:

http://www.gramps-project.org/wiki/index.php?title=GEPS_009:_Import_Export_Merge

We are also working on incorporating a universal ID so that once one has identified matches in a comparison, Gramps can keep track of that information for later use.

We are also working on some Gramps-based on-line collaboration tools (more on that soon). So, although Gramps doesn't currently have much support for these types of problems, I think the future looks bright. Ideas welcomed!
