Gedcom 'cleanup' What should be left on this profile? [closed]

+7 votes

I've recently added some sourced information onto the profile of Churchill -206.  There is an awful lot of gedcom gumph underneath some of which is irrelevant and some of which I think is just incorrect. My sources also manage to appear twice.  What can safely be fot  rid of? what, if anything, should be kept? (it's not 'my' profile so will contact the one manager that seems to be still active)

I've also added 'research notes' to his father and that is almost as bad so would like an opinion on that.

(notwithstanding that John Churchill senior  has an extraneous wife and I think  the wrong mother but that is a different question!)

Thank you that was a helpful, I've just done a very drastic revision, though it took ages because I lost confidence a couple of times and didn't save it.   In the end I decided to save it and leave a comment that it can be restored if the project managers object. There was only one ancestry link that went anywhere; to a private tree which I left.
You did wonderfully!
Thank you
