Quick ways to rub out unwanted people
It takes a long time to delete whole families using Legacy, so here are a few quick shortcuts I found:
On Ancestry: Open your tree, then open the <list all people> view. Go to the person you want to delete and click on the little person icon (sell below)
Then click on the pencil when the shortcut appears.
The <quick edit> box will appear, just click on the <Delete this person> in the bottom right hand corner and you will have deleted them.
In Legacy I go to the Index of names, find the person I want to delete, right click and hit delete. Easy!
WARNING : be careful! back up your program before you delete, so that you can re-instate any ancestor you accidently rub out!
