     Question and Answer

    What are "Hints" and how do they help me merge data?

    A merge allows you to add new data to your OneGreatFamily Genealogy Browser from outside sources. When new information is added to our database, it is compared with your own research. Where matches occur, graphical indicators appear in your Genealogy BrowserTM. These symbols are called "Hints".

    Gen-Bulbs - Light bulb symbols that alert you to matched data that has been culled from outside sources.

    Gen-Bolts - Lightning bolt symbols which identify where conflicts exist between your research and other data gathered on the same individual.

    Viewing Hints: To use these valuable tools, start by selecting the "View Hints" icon on your Genealogy Browser Toolbar, select the "Gen-Bulbs" and "Gen-Bolts" icons. This will display a Gen-bolt or Gen-bulb icon on every individual in your Starfield that has new information or a conflict. Select the individual with the Gen-bolt or Gen-bulb icon, and you can then click the hints to view the new information. You can also view the information by clicking on the individual's name in Handprint view.

    When you click on the "View Hints" button, you are presented with another window similar to the "Edit an Individual" screen. Be sure to check each of the thumb tabs across the top of the window. There may be more than one match category. Where there are possible matches, arrows display that allow you to merge the information into your view. These matches are optional and you can choose not to merge them until you are satisfied that the data is correct.
