Merge people
===Merge people===
There are Merging two ways of merging personal records: {{man label|Compare and Merge}} and {{man label|Fast Merge}}, both available people is done from the Edit menu.
{{man note|Note|Merging people does not discard any information with either method. The decisions you make during the merge only affect which data will become primary and which will become secondary for the resulting merged record.}}
*Compare and Merge[[Image:CompMerge-dialog-regular-people33.png|left|thumb|250px|Fig. 5.26 Compare Merge people(regular view)]][[Image:Merge-peopledialog-expanded-33.png|right|thumb|250px|Fig. 5.27 Merge people(expanded view)]]
When exactly two people are selected, choose '''Edit ->Compare and Merge...''' to invoke the {{man label|Compare PeopleMerge}} dialog.
The dialog allows you to make a decision on whether or not the selected records should be merged. If you decide that the records should not be merged, despite similar names, you may click {{man button|Cancel}} button to close the dialog without making any changes. If you decide to proceed with merging, select Expanding the "Detailed Selection" and the "Context Information" fields on the appropriate {{man button|Select}} radio button to specify bottom left (fig. 5.27) shows more information about the record people to be used as the source of primary data, then click the {{man button|Merge and close}}merged.
If you decide to proceed with merging, select the appropriate {{man button|Select}} radio button to specify the record to be used as the source of primary data, then click the {{man button|Merge and close}}. The data from the other record will be kept as alternate data.
Specifically, all names from the other record will become alternate names of the merged record. Similarly, parents, spouses, and children of the other record will become alternate parents, spouses, and children of the merged record, and so on.
 
*Fast Merge: When exactly two people are selected, choose '''Edit ->Fast Merge''' to invoke {{man label|Merge People}} dialog.
 
 
 
 
The dialog allows you to quickly merge two records, specifying the record to be used as the source of primary data. The data from the other record will be kept as alternate data. Specifically, all names from the other record will become alternate names of the merged record. Similarly, parents, spouses, and children of the other record will become alternate parents, spouses, and children of the merged record, and so on.
 
{{man tip|1=Tip|2=If you are not certain whether or not you need to merge the records, or which record to specify as the source of primary data, use {{man label|Compare and Merge}} method described above..}}
