Will someone check to see why I can't get the whole Biography to show up?

I need help with [[Beebe-699|Dorothea Ellen (Beebe) Garver]], the biography stops part way through the 1940 Census, and no other facts, <ref>ieg< /ref> are showing up either.

Well, I thought it might be because under sources was  < /references>  instead of <references />.  But I changed that, and it didn't help, sorry.

Hi Barbara : )
 

Looks like you were leaving a space in your closing ref tag. It should be </ref> rather than < /ref>. I fixed the spaces for you : )

I might add that if you use named refs e.g.<ref Name=1900C> US Census 1900 Ohio Franklin Columbus </ref> after the first time you just paste <ref Name=1900C/> and it's real easy to forget the "/" before the final >.
