    Trying this feature. I picked a range of people. Chose to include images. Downloaded. Opened to view GEDCOM in Bbedit and see URL addresses at 1 NOTES and and  2 PAGE as examples. How does the content appear if I was to upload this to kiwitrees?

    1 HEAD and 0 TRLR make this “valid” file. So, if I removed the 0 TRLR and added another file, then re-added the 0 TRLR, all is okay? I’m doing groups so want to make sure they can be made into one tree. Although I think one of the offline programs I have, possibly GEDitCom does this.

    Don’t fret, this is one approach I’m exploring.

    No, not OK. If ANY XREF / id is duplicated across those two trees you will have a mess of individuals / families / sources / media / notes / repositories potentially linked to the wrong records.

    If you want to “append” two GEDCOM files let kiwitrees do it properly for you. The main tool is Administration > Family tree tools > Append family tree. It checks for XREF duplications and will direct you to another tool Administration > Family tree tools > Renumber family tree where it will fix the duplication problem. See https://www.kiwitrees.net/faqs/modules/merging-family-trees/ for detailed use / instructions on this.

    All of this is quite different to what GeditCom does. That does tree “merging” where it tries (better than most that try) to merge duplicate records based on names, dates, places etc etc.. Very complex, and often with poor and messy outcomes. It is the best ‘merge’ tool I know, but still not a process I recommend.

    Great. Now have this to refer to when or if I get that far. Only “benefit” of this pandemic — time to play with my dead (most) people.

    If I add a record to Clipping Cart then modify it, how do I “update” the file in the cart? Or is that done for me?

    The data isn’t put into the GEDCOM file until you tell it you are ready to produce and export it. So any accepted changes (yours are probably auto-accepted) will be included up to that point.
