This may be a trivial question where I just have not looked in the right place but, how can I un-match a person’s record after it has been matched to a specific FSID?

I selected the wrong FSID record and now I cannot find any way to un-match the record and have not found any instructions on how to do this. I am beginning to think I have to delete the person, re-add the record to my tree and then match again. I hope there is a simpler way to do this. All advice is welcome.

                                                                          

Also, I read that when you mark a record as "not a match" that record will never show up again. In trying a method to un-match my record, I may have marked the FSID record I want as "not a match". Looks like I may have just dug myself deeper into a hole. Can you undo a "not a match" action?

Just had someone here show me that the "un-match" button is on the "Share Data" menu and not on the "Find Match" menu where I was expecting it to be. My FSID record marked "not a match" showed up too. Looks like my lucky day.
