How to find out which post I adopted

This afternoon I adopted lots of people, among them was double names, wrong spelling, and such.....Now when I started my line of genealogy, I looked for every single person and proceeded with my genealogy  and now they come up in the list full of error"What a nightmare"...grrrrrrr......

I tried to match them but it asked to keep the old file....Why? the reason I couldn't find the file to begin with it is because it is full of errors.  I always have a prove where I found my person. Where can I find the file of which one I adopted? I will not add anymore people on Wikitree until I feel that all my adoptees are cleaned and free of errors.

Thank you, sorry if I feel frustrated...

Well, it looks like you're doing a good job, as far as I can tell.  You might want to start through your  WatchList and check the change tab to see if you created or adopted each of them.  Then make a list of which ones need working on. Sure it takes some time up-front, but when you're done, you'll have a good idea of what you need to work on.  It's probably not as much as you fear.  And, having a list to work from, you can, say, clean up two and then take a break and enter a family member or take on a new profile.

You can look at your contributions list;  each one you adopted will be listed as "you added you as manager or profile of (profile name).

Nan is right. I use my contributions list all the time for the "history" of what I work on. Thanks for improving the profiles.
