How I Find and Correct Duplicate Place-Names

You may be surprised by the number of different ways you’ve entered the same place-name in your Reunion 9 for Mac family file. This is especially true if you don’t routinely check for and correct duplicate place-names. I recommend putting this on your calendar to do periodically just like checking for “unlinked people.”

In this video from the MacGenealogist Archives, I show you my method for locating and correcting duplicate place-names: Finding and Correcting Duplicate Place Names in the Reunion 9 for Mac Genealogy Software. As you’ll see, it’s easier to spot the duplicates the way I do it when compared to only using the places list. It works if you have 2000 or fewer place-names in your family file. If you have more than that use the places list as I demonstrate early in the screencast.
