      It’s the exact same process as shown in the video.

    How long does it actually take once I have merged the profiles…It’s not instant like you show on your video.

      Once a merge is completed, the change should take effect instantly. If you see that the merge is still pending, then it’s likely that it has to be approved by the other manager before it can be completed.

    Why is this just a feature for pro accounts? It gets difficult when people within the same tree are intermarried!

    How do I request a merge? How do I find FAQ’s. I have 21 people listed in my merge file, but cannot figure out how to request merges and I have looked under every link. I am not finding any instructions within the program at all. If it is not something self evident, it becomes very difficult

    Very often the system does not recognize similar profiles on my tree and on other trees even if the names, birth dates, and other details match completely. Therefore they are not in the ‘Merge Center’. How do I send merge requests in such cases?
