GEDCOM import leaves multiple duplicate sources
cdenbow posted a topic in The Master Genealogist v9I have a problem that I can't find a solution to on your web site or in your book. This morning I import a GEDCOM file that has details I didn't have on one branch of my family. The import went well and I then merged the imported dataset into my main dataset. I then, of course, had to merge several individuals who were duplicated. All of that is now accomplished; however, I've got one remaining issue. For some reason each citation of his sources was imported as a separate instance of the source rather than a citation to the same source. In other words, he had about ten or so sources that were cited multiple times, but each citation of a specific source resulted in the generation of a new source rather than referencing the original source. As a result I have several hundred sources that need to be merged. I know how to do this one-by-one, but I wondered if there was a way to do a bulk merge. I've looked at John's TMG Utility and didn't see a way to accomplish this via that route. Any ideas would be much appreciated! Thanks. Carl
