Wow. The number of duplicates for Thomas Prence (aka Prince) was simply horrifying. They have been merged, but the Puritan Great Migration project could really use some help in the following areas. It would be great to have specific people work on specific areas; I hope some of the MANY still-active profile managers will step up to work on this. (My own connection to this profile is ONLY through facilitating the merges of Great Migration immigrants.)
Merging of his spouses. He married four times.
Merging of his children. Please be cautious about making sure the correct mothers are used. Please use Anderson's Great Migration conclusions as a guide.
Cleaning up the narrative. The good news is that there is ANY narrative and LOTS of cited sources. The not-so-good news is that there's so much, it's too much. Ideally, there is one story-line, drawing from multiple sources. Currently, there are a number of == REFERENCE == sections that each quote specific publications about Prence.
Related: we are putting wikitree at risk for copyright violation because so much has been wholesale copied from other sources. Some of those sources are public domain, but some-- such as the Great Migration series-- are copyrighted. These should be extracted, not copied whole cloth. I'm hoping one or two people could collaborate on cleaning this up.
Be cautious about retaining <REF>...</REF> tags.
Please follow a format along the lines of:
== Origins == (include "Disputed" if they are)
== Biography ==
== Wives == (since he had so many)
== Children ==
== Sources == (this particular profile makes good use of the SPAN tag, and I recommend leaving this section alone, at least for now)
== Footnotes ==
== Contributors ==
I'm not saying don't include other section headers and subheaders, but be judicious. This is a LONG profile.
I do recommend leaving the Inventory in as it paints an AMAZING picture of a well-to-do family/household from the 1670s.
Ideally, profile managers (and others) will respond here saying "I'll take on merging descendants through his son George..." etc. so that we can make some effort to coordinate this beast of profile.
Many, many thanks for anyone(s) who can take on making this profile a bit more manageable.
