I have a document worth adding to Jeanne Aunois (abt. 1621-1697). It was done by:

Karole Dumont-Beckett 

Metis Genealogist, Historian, Canadian Historical Novels Author 

1498 Roberval Ave., Orleans, Ont. K4A 2C4

Jeanne (Indian) Onaus-Onout-Nounau-Aunois

Do you have permission from the person who created it to share it to Wikitree?  Most professional genealogists retain the rights to their reports.   If so, you could add it as a free-space page or connect it to the profile as a pdf.

Kathie makes a good point about copyright, if you quote it verbtim.  You can always paraphrase the body of the report and then just cite it as regular source.  And the basic info: birth location and year, marriage, etc., are never subject to copyright so you can always post the info to the bio and use this report as the source.  Better, refer to the source used in this report.
