Pre-1500 badge

Pre-1500 Certification Request

To create or edit profiles of people born 500+ years ago you need the Pre-1500 Certified badge. Help

The badge is awarded by request to members who feel they can make high-level contributions and who:

First   Meet these preliminary requirements:

Second   Have made contributions to pre-1700 or project-protected profiles that demonstrate a practical understanding of the principles behind our Honor Code and Pre-1700 Self-Certification, especially regarding sources and collaboration in high-conflict areas.

We hope you are not put off by this impediment to editing deep ancestors in our collaborative tree. We know that the participation of advanced genealogists like you is critically important to WikiTree's mission, and we know that you're being generous by wanting to help.

Thank you!

Experienced WikiTreers who aren't experienced with pre-1500 genealogy can still request the badge if they feel they can help with basic editing, categorization, images, etc. Explain in the comments what you have in mind.
