I have an error on my family tree . I have a note on one of my relatives saying she is a copy. There is no delete button . I cannot delete the other one as she has the links to family members. How can I join them together . :-S

Email and ask them to help sort it out.

It is not an error. That relative is displayed twice to keep the diagram simple. There is only one set of data held. Effectively they are joined.

I have had this problem some time ago, emailed support, and they removed the apparent copy .
It takes them a few days to reply.
