I have a cousin who is a notable enough to have a WikiPedia page.  I just updated some information in the article about her AND I add a comment about her genealogical information being available here on WikiTree.

I have no idea if what I did would be the correct way to do this?  Give it a look and let me know your thoughts please?  Mary Esther Gaulden Jagger

Lianne, if you are around and could chime in I would apprecatie it.

I don't see why the link needs to read Wikitree Profile Gaulden-51 Mary Esther Jagger

Maybe just Wikitree or Wikitree profile or Wikitree Mary Esther (Gaulden) Jagger

I only say that because it is a clickable link and also some people might not know what a profile is.  It's hard for us to imagen that somebody wouldn't know what a profile is but it's true.

On an unrelated subject the Wikipedia article doesn't mention where she earned her master's degree!

That's my thought, I thought you'd never ask! :)

PS Are there any other links to Wikitree from Wikipedia to compare?
Vincent,

Why didn't you make your comment an answer so I could select it as best?????

I agree fully about the hot text in the link.  I would just use WikiTree for the hot text.  The link, itself, is perfect.

My guess is that she was one of those super-brilliant people (a few of whom I've been fortunate enough to know) who skipped a masters' degree and went directly to a PhD.

You sure have great genes, Mags!
Thanks Gaile!  She was a really cool person to talk to, too.

As for a Master Degree, I'll check into it with my cousins.

Wow, I was wondering if I could link people/proflies from wikitree to already created profiles on wikipedia. I am glad I searched in G2G so I did not have to ask the question in G2G & duplicate it. I rec'on I'll be busy with the 7-8 + (IDK how many) profiles I'll add there ASAP. :)

To link you from Wikitree to Wikipedia you can also do this as a cross Wikipedia link

 [[Wikipedia:Mary_Gaulden_Jagger]]

or 

[[Wikipedia:Mary_Gaulden_Jagger|This is my text]]
