     Q&A: How does OneGreatFamily help my family tree grow?

    Discover two ways OneGreatFamily helps your family tree grow

    OneGreatFamily's service is designed to help people extend their family trees as they discover how they are related to others. This discovery often takes place as new relationships are discovered through matching and merging. This matching and merging takes place through two processes: 1. Automatic matching and merging performed by OneGreatFamily, and 2. Matching and merging performed by members.

    Automated Matching and Merging

    OneGreatFamily automatically matches and merges identical individuals in its database to remove duplication and to allow opportunities for collaboration. Merges only take place when OneGreatFamily has determined that the two individuals are matches with 100% certainty.

    Matching and Merging Performed by Members

    Individuals that are similar within OneGreatFamily, but who aren't exact duplicates, often create hints. These hints, which are indicated by light bulbs in the Genealogy Browser, can be accepted by subscribers to OneGreatFamily. Accepting a hint will merge the two records in question and provide the same opportunities for collaboration as an automated merge. Accepting relationship conflicts often results in the merging of families in OneGreatFamily as well.

    With any merge, you will likely discover new individuals who are also working on your family tree. Working with others from around the world will help you verify and expand your family tree over time.

    Any merge can also result in the addition of new information to your family tree. Individuals who are added to your family tree will appear in gray boxes. New information that is added may result in new hints and conflicts as well.

    OneGreatFamily is pleased to be helping millions of people research and expand their family trees as they become part of OneGreatFamily. With between one and three million names being added to OneGreatFamily each month, you are sure to find new information for your family tree and meet others who are researching your family lines.
