Merge Event / Fact Definitions

The Merge Event Definition window appears when you are:
  • Importing the Master Event Definition List from another family file
  • Importing a GEDCOM file with event definition records
  • Combining duplicate location in the Master Event Definition List.

    And the information items are not all identical.

    This screen allows you to select or combine the differing information into each merged event definition record.  

    To merge an event definition:
    1. Choose the desired fields to show.  (Choose from Description, Date and Place.)
    2. Edit the event sentence definitions.  If you want to copy the right definitions to the left, replacing them, click the button.
    3. If you want to copy all the fields from the right record to the left, click .
    4. Click Save to save the merged event definition on the left.

    Automating the Merge
  • To always keep the existing definition information no matter what the other event shows, choose the Always keep the existing event definition option before saving the current record.
  • To always accept the incoming definition information, including its blank fields, if any, choose the Always overwrite the existing event with the incoming event option.
  • To copy information from the incoming event that is missing from the current event, choose the Always copy the incoming event items that are missing from the existing event option.

    Choosing one of these options effectively turns off the displaying of the Merge Event Definition window for the remainder of the current operation.
