The profile of Pierre L'Enfant who was the architect of Washington, DC is orphaned and virtually blank.  WikiTreer needed to adopt and develop this historic profile. My plate is full or I'd try it myself.

Thank you, Doug, for picking it up. I hate to see orphaned profiles; especially an historical one.
SWEET! Nicely done, Doug. That was quick and beautiful!

Am curious about the sources for the various images on the page. I was looking in particular at the painted portrait. There's somehting very modern about it. I'd love to know when it was done and by home.
You might want to add that link as a source on the Image page. Thanks.
Thank you...oversight on my part.
Doug, there's little to anything in wikitree help text to remind us to put the source of a photo/image anywhere on the profile.

So. Um. I'm on a mission. ;-)
I have been citing images separately from sources and citations. It follows along the lines of MLA formatting.
Lyndon, thank you. Could you link to a few examples of where you do this? I'd really like to see wikitree add citation advice to its help pages about photos and I'd love to see some examples of where this is well done. Thanks.
*Sigh* I am always too slow . . . probably just as well! :-)
Hi, Jilliane! I use about six versions of the same page between my home and work. I will work on making a comprehensive profile, and then you and those who would like to see it may view it. I cannot take credit for most of it though. My mentor from the Magna Carta Project (April Daughenbaugh) sent a lot of helps to me. I have added a few other things. This page and the other pages I am working on Time lines and world pandemics) will be my focus for the week. Cheers to All!

There's the option of putting Notables on as manager when it's someone who is, indeed, notable. Link the wiki page, mark for Notables project, and put the project on to manage:
