Could you open a backup, export the individual in question with all of his
events and citations, and import into your current database?

Subject: [GENBOX] Accidental Deletions - Help!!!
At some stage in the last week, one of my principle ancestors has been
deleted taking with him dozens of events entered over a long period. It
is VERY easy to do this even with the warning message - the main suspect
is one of the cats who loves to walk across the keyboard!
This wouldn't be a big deal if there was a way to recover, but as far as
I can see the deleted records cannot be restored or copied from a backup
and so the only way to restore is to painstakingly re-enter all of the
data, loosing the ID numbers in the process.
If there is a way anyone has discovered to recover, PLEASE let me know!
