Step 1: View Hot Matches
Once you have added all of the information that you have, invited your living relatives, and shared your profiles, you can view your Hot Matches list to see if any of your relatives are already on another Geni tree.
If you don't have any matches yet you can check back after your relatives join your tree and start adding more people. If you do have matches, sign up for a 14 day free trial of Geni Pro to view your matches. As a Pro user you can view Hot Matches, use Advanced Search, and Collaborate with other Geni users.
If you find a match that looks correct, use the Confirm Match link to view the two profile side by side and confirm the match.
Requesting the merge will send a request to the manager of the duplicate profile to merge them. You can add a short message to the request if you'd like. Once the approve the merge your tree will include any additional information that was on their tree. This may include new Hot Matches, so make sure you keep checking your Hot Matches list.
