Removing notice to provide official sources

+9 votes
I have updated Savoie-174 with source records for her birth, marriage and death, which I believe is enough to substantiate the facts presented on the page.  How do we now proceed to removing the notice that the record requires additional sources?

Hi Dave,

Just delete this line: {{ Unsourced|Acadian }} from the biography and it will remove the tag.

Hope this helps!

Once you have listed sources (as you have) you can just delete the {{unsourced}} in the bio. Nothing else is required.

 Hi Dave, you remove the {{Unsourced|Acadian}} tag.

I have removed the {{Unsourced|Acadian}} tag fir the profile of Marie-Josephte Marie Savoie aka Savoye, Savoy (1706 - 1757) for you.

A suggestion on sources such as Using Ancestry and My Heritage or any paid genealogy websites.

Links to sources on paid subscription sites such as Ancestry, FindMyPast, and MyHeritage can be frustrating for WikiTree members and visitors without access to these sites. We recommend searching for a freely available copy of the source document on sites such as FamilySearch, USGenWeb,, and HathiTrust. If the source record is only available to paid subscribers, when providing the URL please also extract as much information as possible, such as relevant names, dates, and the source of the original data. Providing the source as an inline reference within the biography also helps to clarify which biographical facts are supported by the source citation.

Thank you David, makes sense.  I just hope to someday find a free source of those church record images; I'm always worried with the copyright notices to just include those images on the site.
Hi back Dave, WikiTrees terms of service does not allow members to use any copyrighted material/photo's. I find a great free website for finding sources for the US, Canada and most of Europe.
