Silver fox,
First, thanks for getting back to me....
Looking back I don't think I explained what I needed to know.
I first noticed when I was looking at the profile page for a person in my online tree....that on the right side toward the bottom I saw UNSOURCED CITAIONS....not sure what that was I looked and under that title there were a list of citations....but not linked to a source.

So I then checked my FTM to see if I could figure out what happened......When I clicked on the SOURCE menu across the top and went to the page that lists the source on the left and the citations in the middle panel and the details on the right......I scrolled to the end of the source list and found and "unlinked".....I saw a whole list of no source citations in the middle panel. I highlighted one of those to see who this was for.......after randomly checking several.....I noticed that they were all citations that should have been from ONE source....

I looked through the list of sources and the source I knew these all went to was gone. This source was one I had from years ago. I don't know what the SOURCE is gone, but all the citations are still linked to facts. Since ALL of the citations come from ONE source......I was trying to find out if I could.....Make a NEW source and link all the citations at one time to that new source.....

Does that explain it a little better?
