If you use 'merge' it doesd not automatically nerge the two as it
opens both to give a comparison of the two and allows you to
select which are right and discard the other

I have got myself into a bit of a mess. I have been using
Ancestry for my family tree in conjunction with FH. I use
Ancestry as I and my family have done DNA tests, so it has been
very useful to discover new relatives. However, my discipline of
trying to dual maintain both databases has fallen down and now I
have about 500 more records on Ancestery than in my FH project.
I have downloaded the Ancestry gedcom and made a comparison to
the FH gedcom, but in reality I just don’t know where to start
in trying to construct the missing relatives into the FH tree.
I don't want to press merge - I have made back-ups, because i
do want to validate each record to ensure that it is attaching
to the right person. Also I know there are some errors in
Ancestry due to transcription mistakes, that I have researched
and corrected in FH.
What approach would you recommend please?
Apologies for the conundrum. Will spend more time and effort in
the future in dual maintaining the two databases.
