Cryptic Codes in Biographies

Someone else's question got me looking at a couple of profiles without managers.

I've seen something very similar to this elsewhere, but I have no idea what it's supposed to mean or where it comes from.  In the Biography section of one profile I'm looking at, I see this.

Child: @I10287@
Child: @I8163@
Child: @I15806@
Child: @I17669@
Child: @I15380@
Child: @I9058@
Child: @I14898@
Child: @I20304@
Child: @I10646@
Child: @I2710@
Child: @I19157@
Child: @I2701@
Child: @I1830@

Does anyone have an idea what that is supposed to mean?

That's one of those things that gets imported from a GEDCOM, but doesn't really mean anything anymore. Those codes would have linked that profile to the children's profiles in whatever database this was exported from (Ancestry, Geni, etc.), but those codes are no longer linked to anyone.

So this can safely be deleted from the Biography section when you're trying to clean it up and make it look nice. :)

That's what I wanted to hear!  I was afraid they had some meaning for someone and was leaving them.  Thanks!
You're welcome! I love making the bio sections look nicer, so I'm always happy when I see others doing the same!
