Hello Carol Peterson,
I did not mean to imply that you might be a 'name grabber'. That was in reference to
the creators of some GEDCOMs.
"Do you really trust the people from whom you receive these massive GEDCOMs? I have seen too much inaccurate and undocumented sloppy research. Some people are just name grabbers."
I keep an extra copy of UFTree on my computer. It was installed in a folder that is quite separate from my working UFTree.
When I find a GEDCOM that I want to look at, I import it to that extra UFTree. There I can look at the GEDCOM in detail. I can delete individual records that contain no new information. I can 'group' those individuals I wish to add to my working UFTree project(s). If I made an imperfect group, I can add more individuals from the GEDCOM project to the group. I can unsellect individuals from that group. I can copy that 'group' to a new project in my working UFTree program. I can merge a working project and the new project. I can merge identical individuals that appear after the project merger.
This is a lot of work but it forces me to carefully think through what and why I am doing that. This works for me.
I had no intention of labeling you a 'name grabber'.
Thank you for your explanation of your methodology.
