I do it manually as I go along. Actually, I carefully copy it, being sure to leave the page number, then replace with nothing, being careful not to hi Return to beginning, or whatever that message is, so the title of whatever won't get deleted. This will usually get rid of a batch of headers at a time, but not all, as usually there are various mispellings in them. A few times I've discovered, as I read, that the title was repeated in the main body for some reason, but that's only happened a couple of times and it was easy enough to replace it.
