I accidentally added a baby to the wrong family. How do I delete the name?

If the record is a valid record but was added to the wrong family, you can just move the record to the correct family and make any corrections needed. If the record is a duplicate, you can cancel the record.

Keep in mind that moving the child to the right family would involve moving the child to the right household as well as making sure the correct parents are listed on the child's record.

How do you go about canceling a record? I got confused and double added a record, so we have two records for one child.

The Help Center (under 'Help' in LCR) may have instructions on how to cancel a record. For the case of a duplicate record, you can merge records with the 'Merge Duplicate Records' button under 'Membership'.
