Mike, Thanks for the reply. It looks as though this is a long term project!
I'll have to work through the tree in a methodical way and take my time to
get everything right.
I'll get new entries right at the beginning. Thanks again.

Alan, it is unlikely that simply copying Notes to Source Records will be
effective for at least two reasons:
1) Source Records need a Title and structured fields such as Type, Author,
Publication, Text From Source, and Notes.
2) Source Records need a Citation to link them to their associated Facts
(Events & Attributes).
Media such as .jpg can be linked to the Media tab of Source Records and is
one of their advantages.
It may be more effective to use Ancestral Sources to re-capture your Source
It does not have to done in one go, but progressively over time.
The FHUG has a great deal of advice on using Source Records and Ancestral

Subject: [FHU] Notes Mess up
I have just realised that I have been entering my Source info. into Notes. I
assumed that they would be more readily available.
Is there a quick way of copying Notes into Source for all individuals.? Is
it possible to include .jpg in Source records.?
