Challenge of the Week: Add missing dates to profiles [closed]

+7 votes

Hi WikiTreers,

Will you join our Data Doctors Challenge for this week?            

Aleš's "WikiTree+" data analysis has uncovered thousands of profiles that are missing dates.

This is a true genealogists' challenge. Every one requires research.

  1. If you can find a source with a date, enter it with the source citation.
  2. If your research doesn't yield a date, see if you can estimate one based on the family members. If you do estimate a date, be sure to include the {{Estimated Date}} Research Note Box along with an explanation of how your estimate was made.

Here is the table of profiles with no dates.

If you find or estimate a date, set the status for the profile [more info]. That will earn you a point. The member with the most points at 11:59pm EDT on Sunday night will get the badge and the bragging rights.

If you're participating, please post here to let us know. It helps us avoid stepping on each others' toes, and it's nice to cheer each other on. Also post here if you have any questions about how to participate.  

Thanks for helping!

P.S. If you want to chat or coordinate what you are working on with others, in addition to this G2G thread there is also a handy spreadsheet courtesy of Steven Tibbetts.

I must be stupid, but I cannot locate the Suggestion List. The links take me in circles. Please help an old gal out, and put a big arrow on it or something!
