After accepting an Ancestry hint, I discovered new information showing the hint should be rejected. How can I change the hint from accepted to a different status in Ancestry? In RM7?

 

Any help appreciated

I use Ancestry for collecting sources and occasionally accept one that doesn't pass further inspection. A accepted hint is simply a accepted source.  You go to the person's profile and delete the source from the profile and delete any data created based on that source.

Thanks Jim,

I knew it was realitively easy to handle on the RM7 side. I have been just changing the hint to rejected and deleting the fact/data. However, on the Ancestry side the hint stays in the accepted list. I haven't found a way to move it to ignore or undecided. You can delete the info/data in the Ancestry tree and just ignore the hint, but that seems kind of sloppy.
