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. We also search for dates within +/- 4 years (circa). Matches are pulled from all profiles Connected to you with the exception of minors. Note that all the data, first and last names, birth and death dates as well as gender must match for a result to be returned.

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 page, 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.

Tips

Use Matches to coordinate and collaborate with other Geni users to Merge Trees and Profiles. If you find duplicate profiles in your Tree using Matches you may wish to first contact the profile owner or manager to let them know you too have a duplicate profile for the same person.
