I'm somewhat confused, probably because I didn't define my situation well. So, here's (hopefully) a better description:

I started making entries from the Strauss/Kieser Family History Chart book. The author said several folks (approximately 40) we born in Mindora MN. So I entered that. FTM didn't like that; it recommended Mindoro MN. I checked; yes, Mindoro MN is the correct spelling. So I entered the locations as Mindoro. Now I realize I should have entered Mindora MN as the location.

I probably should have entered Mindoro as the correct name and as the preferred fact showing Mindora as the alternate fact.

What I'd like to do is change the preferred to Mindoro MN and make Mindora as the alternate fact using the Strauss/Kieser Family History Chart book as the source AND source citation (Strauss/Kieser Family History Chart book is the source; the chart number and page is the source citation).

How do I mass change the current Mindoro referencing the Strauss/Kieser Family History Chart book to an alternate fact and create a new source of Mindoro MN as the preferred fact and link all 40 or so persons to the new preferred fact.
