Hello, a RootsMagic helpful person:

 

I somehow accidentally created a profile (actually a handful of them) that wrongly has two different sets of parents on the top of a profile or duplicates of one set of parents.  Is there a way, preferably an easy way, to remove the wrong sets or duplicated parents?

For two sets of parents linked to a child, and both sets of parents to be kept in the database:

1 - navigate to the child in Family View

2 - toward the upper left, just below the menu bar, you should see Parents [2] and a down-arrow

3 - click on the down-arrow and select the set of parents to be REMOVED from the child

4 - right-click on the child and select Unlink > from Parents

5 - the desred Parents will still be linked to the child
