  5. In the Research Help section on the right side, click Show All.
  6. Click Possible Duplicate.
    • If you are sure that the record is about someone else, click Not a Match.
    • To compare the possible duplicates in more detail, click Review Merge, and compare the records. If you then decide that the records are not a match, click Not a Match.
