This is really confusing! Some of the information is from me as she was my mother so who else other than me would be a better source.

Put the same name in "Proper First Name" also in "Preferred Name"

The unsourced template " {{Unsourced}} " gets automatically added to profiles you create without sources. In this case, because she is your mother. Put something like  "Personal knowledge of daughter Debbie Murphy." in the section under == Sources ==. Then remove {{Unsourced}} from the top of the profile. The sources get more important as you go back farther, because we share ancestors. So when you get to your grandparents or great grandparents, you'll want to add at least a couple (maybe census, or birth/marriage/death certificates).

As an example my mother in law https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Szych-1
