Is there a way to query for profiles that have more than one category?

For example, is there a way to view profiles (using Wikitree+ or otherwise) that are in the "Unsourced Profiles" category AND the "Scotland" category without having to rely on adding a new subcategory such as "Scotland, Unsourced Profiles"?

You can query WT+ for any two categories.

As described on help page you can limit the search to category full name like


and add it again to query for another category.

When the Unsourced template is used, it can be entered as {{Unsourced|Scotland}}

This might be what you are looking for.  It is different ways of finding Unsourced profiles for Scotland.  


1st Category: Scotland, Unsourced Profiles have {{Unsourced | Scotland}} in profiles

2nd Location: Scotland, Category:Unsourced Profiles have {{Unsourced |Stirlingshire}}  and other Scotland locations or they only have {{Unsourced}} with Scotland locations in Birth / Death

3rd Location: Scotland, Suggestion 802 & 803 have Suggestions 802 (Empty Profile) and 803 (Almost Empty Profile) and have Scotland locations on profile and no {{Unsourced}} template

4th Location: Scotland, Suggestion 131-134  have Suggestions 131-134 (No Dates) and have Scotland Locations on profile and no {{Unsourced}} template

Very helpful! But would this extend to any two categories, not just unsourced + location?
That is the category page. If you go to it, you will see that you can do a category search to review other categories.  Other category pages would have different information. The Unsourced categories with a location have that information.  These pages would be used during the Source A Thon that will be coming up.

The categories for Needs Profiles Created were used during the Connect A Thon. They have similar information, but different related suggestions on their pages.

Hope that helps.
