    Going through my QRZ Logbook, I noticed some contacts had two and sometimes even three confirmations for the same QSO. I think what happened for the double confirmations is download from LoTW had slightly different timestamp (QSO start vs QSO end). The rare triple confirmations confound me; don't know why they happened.

    Is there an easier way to clean up my Logbook, removing specific items? Going through page at a time, viewing:confirmed/goto page/select records/actions/delete/continue, viewing:confirmed/goto page/select records/actions/delete/continue, ... (100+ pages) is very tedious.

    Well I've managed to remove 50 dupes. Changed the page length to 200 which helps, but there's still 40 more pages of confirmations to go through.

    I've deleted about 300 dupes. My confirmation ratio is still about the same.

    Nobody has had this problem or there's no easy solution?

    The figure below describes how QRZ deals with duplicates.

    Then the mystery deepens. All those ANDs required to log a confirmation?

    I log once directly in QRZ, OR upload an ADIF from N1MM (not both).
    Maybe a second upload from LoTW (and not always).

    How is it possible three confirmations are being recorded for the some QSOs?

    Found another triple confirmation. Top one uploaded from LoTW, middle one logged into QRZ logbook, have no idea where the third came from.

    They are spaced one or over 1 minute apart hence not duplicates (plus comments differ). Check your input and ADIF files that you import for source.

    Yes, I noted the time differential in the original post. Where does that 3rd confirmation come from?

    The earliest two were separately manually entered; the latest is from an ADIF upload.

    Thinking that before dropping HRD I must have done a mass transfer. That could explain it.

    Still wish there was an easier way to clean up these dupes and tripes. Thanks for your time.
