Hello Roy. Can you add the link to the profile that you are working on? It will make it easier for members to help answer your question. Some may even be able to help you locate sources.

I noticed you are very new to WikiTree. Welcome!

You should look into joining the England Project if you would like to work on English profiles. Here is a link to the England profile standards:

I also see that you are mostly Scottish, so you may want to join the Scotland Project too.

They both have great programs to learn about WikiTree standards and their project standards.

I hope this helps. Good luck!
