Cleaning Up Sources
Due to merges and the longevity of my family tree in various software programs, my master source list is a mess. I'm having trouble cleaning it up in RootsMagic.
There is automerge, which gives me fear.
There is manual editing, but duplicate sources such as census, marriage records, and the like are often the main source. I can't easily open the people's data to change the source data to details from the Source List screen, or am I missing something?
When I merge duplicate source items, what happens to the details? They stay, I presume, but I worry what happens when the details are in the source info for one person or a family, and not in the details.
I know I'm speaking to my peeps, so you understand what I'm saying. Help? :D Thanks.
