There are dead links o sources in several profiles I imported from a GEDCOM

+6 votes

This Robert King profile has a dead link for sources #17 & #18.  When I click on the #S843 link next to their numbers under "Sources", nothing happens.  They should point to a source Book, "History of the Presbyterian Church of Upper West Conococheague".  This is true also for MANY of the marriage links in my import.  All the offending profiles were created recently by my import of KingBrown02.  How can this be fixed?

Well, this is the sort of glitch that causes  many of us to be reluctant to import gedcoms -- and why we suggest starting with a small gedcom.

Apparently the software that created your gedcom stores "Sources" separately from the "Citations" that it attaches to facts. Depending on how a particular citation or source was stored, it may or may not get included in the gedcom. If you can dissect the original record for one of these profiles and compare it with what got imported here, you might be able to find a pattern.
