How do I confirm a match in the new Discoveries section?

To confirm a match in the new Discovery section of your family site, please do the following:

  1. Log in to your family site.

  2. Move your mouse cursor over the ‘Discoveries’ tab and select ‘Matches by people’ or 'Matches by source'.

       3. Select All Matches, Smart Matches or Record Matches view

       4. Click ‘Review X matches’ on the right side of the person’s name to view a list of all the matches found for this person.

       5. Click on ‘Review match’ to access detailed information about the specific match 

The next page will give you all details available about the matching individual, including photos, facts, relatives, as well as a tree comparison window where you can view the person's card in both your tree and the matching tree. 

     6. To confirm the match without extracting information to your family tree, click on the ‘Confirm Match’ button on the top right corner. 


Note: If you wish to 'unconfirm' a match, filter down the matches by ‘Confirmed’, click on ‘Review X match’, then on ‘Review match’. You will see a sentence stating that the match was confirmed and saved. Click on ‘Undo confirm’ in order to cancel the match confirmation:



Note: To confirm 'all matches' at once, you need to visit the 'matches by source page' and filter down the matches by 'Smart Matches'. Click on 'More actions' on upper right hand side of the list and choose 'Confirm all'.
