Looking good so far, Dan. The only thing you need to do is clarify the sources more. For instance, the profiles that have the sources of "tombstone" , add the name of the cemetery and the location. The object of sources in genealogy is to describe "where" you or someone else can find the information again easily if you need to check the facts.

Maggie makes such a good point here.

So many of us are used to working on our genealogy in our own little bubble, and when we join a collaborative community like this it's easy to forget that whatever we put on a profile needs to be so clear that anyone stopping to look will understand what it is and where it came from. We are no longer documenting for just ourselves, but for the whole community! :-)
