I've been a hobby genealogist for probably 20 years.  I always used RootsMagic, but I have to admit that some of my habits in the early years as far as entering data was kind of sloppy.  I did not totally understand what I was doing when I entered source references, for example.  I am now at a point that, to move forward, I think I need to spend some time going back through and checking for errors.  Also, i need to ensure that the citations meet accepted standards for evidence.


I was wondering if any of you have ever had to do this.  If so, do you have any recs on how I can make the work efficient and productive?

There is a Facebook group called Genealogy Do-Over that might be helpful.
