Problem with references - Help! [closed]

+8 votes
Hi!  For some reason my citations/footnotes/references are not showing up on this profile.  I even deleted everything and put it all back, yet it still doesn't show up.  Can someone take a look and see if you can see it, or if I just need to send back the new glasses I just got??  Thanks!

Those pesky details trip all of us up ! When completely frustrated because I can't find my mistake, I will compare to one I know works! And then also my forehead Abbas say, "I knew that!"

Well sheesh. I guess I've looked at one too many </ref> today. Thanks Anne.

A source is the identification of where you obtained information. Sources are critically important for genealogy. Some even say that genealogy without sources is mythology.[1]

You must include your sources when you put information on WikiTree. It's in our Honor Code.

Thanks David, I'm well versed in sourcing, but my eyes are tired and I had one little / out of place. It's fixed now. :)
