The merge function in FTM 2009 (v220.127.116.115) is giving inconsistent results when dealing with family members.
For example, I start a new tree; add one entry for Alphonse A Schless, birth place of St Louis, Missouri; and click Web Search. The first result is from the 1910 US Census showing Alphonse at age 14; also listed are his mother (his father had previously died), three brothers and one sister. The problem is the FTM's Merge function only offers to merge Alphonse's data, no mother, no siblings.
If I do the same tree and search on Ancestry.com, the Save This Record function recognizes the parent and siblings.
Why am I getting different results?
