deduplicating 1 week 6 days ago #1

Recent I downloaded a lot of gedcom files from a repository.
Now I am deduplicating my trees. I have some questions
Child 01 has parents 11 and 12 = family 1112
Child 02 has parents 21 and 22 = family 2122
These persons are duplicates (01=02; 11=21 and 12=22).

webtrees reports possible duplicates 01 and 02, that's ok.
but webtrees doesn't report possible duplicates family 1112 and 2122, so before the final deduplicating I have to make a notice of the duplicate of 1112 and 2122, and merge these records manually.

Can you tell me I am doing something wrong?

Best regards,
Marianne

If there is a small difference in name or a date then webtrees sees them as not duplicate, even though logically (being parents of a found duplicate) they must be.

This is one reason why entering new data by hand instead of merging is preferred by some of us.
stamboom.BertKoor.nl runs on webtrees v1.7.13

11 and 21 have exact the same name
Also 12 and 22 have
The only difference is that 11 and 12 are married, 21 and 22 are related, but don't have a marriage record.

webtrees unfortunate doesn't see them as a possible duplicate,

... in similar cases when deduplicating, I'm doing it the same way you do. I notice all the additional necessary merge operations on a sheet of paper and do them manually. You are right it would be nice if webtrees would suggest these merges (new function); there are some other applications that offer after a merge operation additional merge operations for near relatives that are maybe duplicated, too.

I have also used the same method as @mariannevanharten and webtrees misses possible duplications.

... there are some other applications that offer after a merge operation additional merge operations for near relatives that are maybe duplicated, too.


@hermann, are these other applications stand alone programs?

My list contains over 500 duplicates.
Just I created an Excel-sheet containing this list, which reproduces a list of URLs to help me deduplicating the families.

I hope deduplicating families is working easier in a next release...
