Removing Households

    This might seem like a silly question, but I've just realised that one of the entries I have is wrong - sometimes my computer is slow when it changes the information for the census data and it must have delayed long enough for me to accidentally enter a household on the 1881 census when they should have been on the 1841!

    Is there anyway to delete the incorrect entry?

    I don't know of a way to remove a whole household with a single action but individuals can be deleted one at a time.
    Select the individual from the list of ancestors displayed on My Ancestors page and then click on the Delete button at the bottom of the Edit Ancestor page which gets displayed.

    Or you can edit the existing entry - whether you want to edit or delete an entry start by left-clicking the person's name.
