This bozo (me) managed to delete some contacts that shouldn't be deleted with a list of those that should.
Now the whole world knows about it and is waiting for me to restore them.
I do this query below and get 0 results but I see at least on the the recycle bin. Why and how to fix this? I know the date and time when I did this if that helps.
SELECT Id, name, IsDeleted FROM Contact WHERE IsDeleted = TRUE
