At MyHeritage, we understand the importance of preserving your family history and documenting our family history discoveries.
We’re always eager to add new details, and sometimes forget to to look back at our previous entries and fill in the missing pieces of our research.
Here are a few tips to help “trim” and edit your family tree to make sure it’s up-to-date with the latest family information.
1. Merge Duplicates
Over time it’s possible that a person may be listed more than once in a family tree. With the Check for Duplicates feature in Family Tree Builder, it’s easy to run a duplicate check on your family tree. To use this feature, go to Tools and Check for Duplicates. You can then merge and edit those duplicates accordingly.
