Yes Russ. You wrote I thought I explained the Merge feature before. It is NOT for connecting Family Lines. A Merge is when you have TWO Family Files that you want to be in one file.
I do in fact have TWO family files. In desperation I created a separate Scott family file, which appears along with my other family files at the top right hand corner of the opening screen. This was a few weeks ago, and at your prompt I tried the MERGE route. Nothing happened so I abandoned that plan. So as you say ....... A Merge is when you have TWO Family Files that you want to be in one file. I have TWO family files - a Macdonald and a Scott. I want to attach the Scott to the Macdonald If you could take me through the MERGE procedure, the problem could go away. Alistair
