corrected a profile then found she has a large US family!
I started adding dates & places for a New Zealander whose family I've recently been working on. I worked backwards easily, adding info for the earlier generations, all correctly named & many with the right year but with US place names instead of New Zealand ones.
The problem started with George Crozier [K2F8-1R9], his wife's grandfather, who had the right Irish birth, was married correctly to Edith Smith [LQRJ-3PZ], and 5 of their 6 children were listed with the right birth year but no place. The sixth child, Irene, had all 3 major dates roughly right though all the places were in the US rather than in NZ. I'd just finished adding or correcting her known details then noticed that Edith had [the wrong] parents and a pile of siblings, all with [wrong] dates & US places!
I've obviously mucked up someone's perfectly good family tree but don't know how to go about restoring the info I "corrected" for Edith. This Edith & George are obviously NOT the parents of those children, who were all born in NZ after their parents' 1883 marriage in NZ!
Presumably adding new profiles for the parents of these 6 Crozier children would correct the mishap?? [Shriek!!! I'm going to swear off trying to be helpful!!]

Thank you for your post.
Looking at George and Edith Crozier's records, it looks like the problem may originate in Edith's record. There was a merge that occurred in 2020 and sources that have her living in the states were added earlier this year. The merge may have been between two different people and this is where the problem began.
I will send you a private message requesting more information so we can work on this issue.
I will also move your post to the Family Tree section of Communities Q and A so others trained in Family Tree issues may be able to provide other insights.0
You could also use latest changes and undo some of the changes that you made. Then you would be able to start over and put what you now know is correct.0
