Hi There,

I have done something and can't figure out how to undo my misdeed or explain it either. On one of my families on the family sheet I have a blank with a number beside it where a child's name should go. When I try to edit this empty space hoping to be able to delete it, and the number beside it, I get a pop-up that says I must highlight the person I want to delete. But! There is no one to delete, however I would like to delete the number. Can someone help me, please?

Also, is the RM RootsWeb List not in service any longer?

There is a whole long thread about this very thing at This Link

I don't know how these Ms get added to a family but they seem to be hard to get rid of.
Unlinking the whole family seems to have worked in that instance, but, make sure you know who to re-link and the family information.
It might be best to drag and drop the whole family to a new empty database to use as a reference for relinking the real people.

Oh yes, the RootsMagic-Users mail list is still there.
