Looks like I have it all cleared up now. The basic events BMDB are the ones that had a new principal role added. I as able to delete all of the extra roles with a high number. There were also some dup events and these I was able to delete.
The orginal file came from a RootsIII import and after that nothing was imported that was known. It had not been worked on for over a year and was thought to be ok at that time. I had moved the project folder to a new computer. Yet my backup, that I had was also bad.
Thanks again for the wave of Melissa magic wand.
