Corrrecting Place Names (FTM 2012)

Posted: 1381804145000
Classification: Query
I am reviewing all my data and noticed I may have done something I should not have done.

When I copied the name of a location from a source document, I found out it was spelled incorrectly, but I disregarded that fact and changed the name to the correct place name when I entered into FTM 2012. Now I am thinking I should not have done that.

So here's my questions:

1. Should I show the incorrect spelling with the appropriate source document?
2. Should I correct the place name and use that as the Preferred fact?

If I following question 2 above, is there a way to change all 40-plus sources at one time and add a new source with the correct spelling and use that as the Preferred fact?
