Matches allow you to search for and find duplicate profiles Connected to your Tree. These matches include all similar profiles that share first and last name, date of birth and death (if applicable) as well as gender. Matches are pulled from all profiles Connected to you with the exception of minors.

You may search for and find the results of your matches from the profile page just above the recent activity or from the Tree and 'More' menu by selecting 'Search for Duplicates.' From the profile pages, if there are matches, those matches will automatically be found and saved on that profile. Select the link from the profile page to see the full list of matches.
