Searching for profiles that need sources

I want to add sources where there are none or it says "first hand information". I like the Unsourced Profiles report, but I have dealt with them (pre-1700) and I know there are more. Is there a way to search for this?

Try that one.  You can follow the category backward as well and see how to get there.  When you source from those profiles you can get a Sourcerer's Badge as well.  The Sourcerers Project always appreciates the help.

Another way would be to use the Wiki search page to search for the text "first hand information". If you only want to look at profiles you manage, add "Profile manager: " and your name.
