Household Census Merge
We recently released the new Household Census Merge that allows users to add census information about multiple members of a household into a Member Tree on Only immediate family members of the person initially searched on can be merged into the tree, and users can select whether to merge in all immediate family members or pick only those they want added to their family tree. If a family member is not already in the tree, the merge can automatically add that person to the tree. Learn more at:
