Dag Enno,

Thanks. The import was a long time ago, so that's not an option anymore. If I interpret your message correctly then there is no option within Gramps itself to do this (like it is possible with events).

I think deleting them manually is then the second best option. I don't feel confortable doing a grep/awk export/import.

Groeten terug vanuit Groningen ;)

If you still have the GEDCOM created by Webtrees, this can be easily
done with grep:

grep -v "^1 _UID" borg.ged > new-borg.ged

The command above removes all lines that start with 1 _UID and writes
the result to a new GEDCOM file.

If you made some changes in Gramps already, things may be more
difficult, because I don't know if the current version of Gramps writes
_UID's as 1 _UID. It may put them in DATA blocks, which can't easily be
removed with grep. In such cases awk or even perl might be an option though.

I recommend the use of grep and a new import if you still know what
changes you made after import, and are able to merge those with the new
imported Webtree database.

groeten uit Driebergen,

Enno
