I am a dedicated Legacy user and after extensive use, this is my first problem. I have been maintaining two trees, one on my computer and one on, both quite large. I recently downloaded the ancestry tree and am attempting to merge it with my computer-based file. however, the merge is causing me a gross amount of unnecessary tedious work because it does not recognize duplicates even when the spelling is identical, the parents are identical, and the spouse is identical. In 99% of the cases, the only difference is the user ID; and that is totally unimportant (to me). I have looked and looked and cannot find a place to turn off that comparison. I did find one, but it is already unchecked.
Any recommendations?

Gloria, have you tried posting this in the Legacy group here? The link is

Also, I'd recommend contacting Legacy support. They would be quite helpful - might even spur Geoff to do a special article about large merges like this. I've tried to do the same thing and just gave up -- it was far too tedious.
Julie Anne Wallace,
Thank you for your help. I will go to the Legacy board, and also,
again, thank you.
