FamilySearch Phantom Child

There have been times when adding a child from FamilySearch Family Tree to RootsMagic that FamilySearch does not send a complete packet of information on the child.  The record received from FamilySearch gives only the sex of the child and assigns it a record number in RootsMagic.  This child can not be added to nor deleted.  This is what we call a "Phantom Child".


To remove this "Phantom Child" select File > Database Tools from the menu and run the "Clean Phantom Records" command.
