Cleaning up sources

21 September 2019 - 06:43 AM

When I started researching years ago, I entered each census source by county. Example, 1850 U.S. Federal Census Population Schedule, Henry, AL. I was consistent with that, and then recorded the details for the individual when I cited the source. I was viewing images on microfilm at a library and the older sources show the library as the repository. The problem is that years later I have added images from Ancestry and FamilySearch but I didn't update my citations so I don't know where I obtained the images. Shame on me!

How should I correct this?

I have so much cleanup after moving from Family Tree Maker to RootsMagic and I've been away from researching for about 4 years.

I'm learning so much from following this forum. Thank you for any advice.
