How do I confirm matches?

Follow these steps to review and confirm matches:

1. In your Merge Center or on your relative's profile page, click on Record Match button to view a list of matching records, or the Smart Match button to view matching trees on MyHeritage


2. In the list of matches on MyHeritage, click "Review match" to see if the record is a match for your relative.


3. Next, simply click to confirm or reject the match.


4. Once a match is confirmed, the record will appear as a Confirmed Match on your relative's profile page. Note that confirming matches with MyHeritage trees will not merge the trees as the trees are separate. A source with a citation including important record data will be automatically created for confirmed Record Matches. 


If it is a Smart Match, you will have the option to create a source within the profile tab.
