In preparation to migrate new FamilySearch data to the Family Tree database, the database team is un-combining the individuals that have the most duplicates in the new FamilySearch database.OK, so this essentially says to me, be patient. I will now do a search to see if there are any other duplicates I might find. If I do find some to merge I will report back in a future post.
This is manifesting itself as combined records suddenly being completely separated and creating duplicates. This is part of the work that is needed in order to prepare the data for Family Tree. This is not happening to all individuals who have been combined, just the ones with the largest number of duplicates.
We ask for your patience and understanding during this transitional period. Please do not re-combine these individuals yet, and give the database team some time to transition the data.
