Kevin- thanks so much. yes I do have the latest version installed.
I ran the check/repair to check and it shows many errors.
Several 'marriage chain bad',
several Notes note pointer to wrong owner,
several 'greater pointer is not greater'
'several points to wife/husband but doesn't point to marriage
'several Family link for child points to marriage, but the marriage doesn't point to family link
also, in checking General Names:
the file header name count does not match tree count

I cannot make a backup from a 'clean file' as I don't know when the file became corrupt. Do you know if there is any secure way to fix this other than creating a new file and gedcom portions to it?
Thanks so much for your help. I appreciate it.
