I'd take the paper to your local library. They might have something they use to remove pen marks from books.

How do we know you're not trying to change the recipient on a check, or improve a test score?

Its a complicated worded diagram regaring a family tree. It could be B for all I care. Does anyone know anything about this, I have to send this only copy back to Nigeria today. I'm only 17 and my family will be very disapointed in me!

Here's a link to a former discussion on the subject. You don't say what color the paper is. Be carefule whatever you use doesn't harm the paper or discolor it.

Btw, might be a good idea to make a copy of this document.

Hair Spray or Brake fluid works on many inks, but it MAY affect the surrounding text, it would be good advice to do a test sample 1`st :)

nice try, but in many instances a chlorox based bleach will make it worse, and it`ll turn from a blue/black to a deep orange brown or green (ink dependant).
as well as weaken the paper :(
