I don't really understand what you mean by an Individual Clean as opposed to checking the entire data set. I think all the checks suggested, including mine, have to be done for individuals. But why would you only do one individual? Don't you want to do them for everyone, which seems to me becomes checking the entire data set.
Well, maybe not everyone at once. As I say in the book, I've still got many people in my data set that I've never gotten around to after all these years - supposed royal ancestries, and very distant cousins inherited from other researchers. Some of them will likely never get done.
