Mass delete sources and copy and paste source from existing person
Last year I added some 10,000 Italian names for ancestors, most with 1-10 customized sources. Two source topics: (1) I used to periodically delete sources (at 25 per page), but that takes too long to complete. I stopped doing that and currently I have over 13,000 sources. Would be nice to have an option for full deletion. Otherwise, I suspect that by year end I will be well over 20,000 sources. (2) Second point is that if I find an existing person and see a source that I want to use for another person, with 13,000 sources it is impossible to find that source. Instead, I merely re-create that source, even though that means that there is a duplication. It would be wonderful if there were a way to find and copy an existing source to be pasted to a new person? Thanks for all the great work you do. Ron Packard

Are you referring to, "Deleting", these "Sources", from YOUR "Source Box"; or, those against/attached to individuals/persons?
Your post is unclear ...
As, I doubt, that you would WANT to "Delete" ALL the "Sources" against/attached to individuals/persons.
As an aside ...
IF, you are referring to the (ie. One's) "Source Box"; THEN, please be advised that, we have been advised that, 'FamilySearch' is FINALLY 'working on' ENHANCEMENTS to the "Source Box".
Here is a reference to such:

I hope this helps, somewhat.
