Merging duplicate people

Hello everyone,

I have been using RM6, RM7 and now RM8 and I have found that the merge utilities to be very inaccurate.

Whenever I download family data, I first run the Auto Merge utility.

I then run the duplicate Merge utility, both the “spelled the same” and “sound alike” and fix the duplicates.

Once I have run these utilities, I then publish a “duplicate list” and fix the duplicates.

I then check the newly added relatives using the people list and sure enough, there are always several undetected duplicates.

Is there another more accurate way to check for duplicates?
