This was one of hundreds of profiles entered by importing from another Genealogy program. Sometimes the importers aren't careful about their information. Some of us use only inforation we can ourselves check and verify, thus eliminating embarassing mistakes. Since no one was really responsible for this, we can't blame anyone, just wish it hadn't happened.

It is always a good idea to make multiple timestamped backups of all work and any information that cannot be confirmed should be placed in a secondary database and only added to the primary once the information is confirmed from multiple sources, if possible.
