How can I recover my missing sources?

+7 votes
I am working on Snook-727 and I added a source. I got an error message "Cite error 3; Invalid <ref> tag; invalid names, e.g. too many." Now, all source info is gone! How do I recover it? Thanks.

I fixed it. The structure is <ref name="shortname">Source information Title Author publisher etc. </ref>

After <ref name="1901 CAN Census"/> needs to come the text for the source ended by </ref>. The way your bio is written now the reference is to everything in the bio between <ref name="1901 CAN Census"/> and the next </ref>
