A suggestion to find out what is the highest number of sources in one WikiTree profile

+6 votes

I would like to suggest maybe a survey or contest even, to find out, as I am very curious, to know how many sources that the most sourced profile has here on WikiTree (i.e. number of souces in most sourced WikiTree profile). Unless you already know that answer, in which case I would really love to know!

Great question, Brandy!  I look forward to answers from people who have added lots of sources to profiles.

I like the answers! I have been creating my Grandpa's biography Lasmanis-6 he was the State Geologist for Washington from 1982 - 2013. He is retired now, but with such an extensive career there is no shortage of sources for him. So far I have 120 very credible sources linked in his biography, and I have so many more to add when I figure out how I want to encorporate them in. I am pretty proud of the work I have done on it!

My vote for is that Queen Elizabeth II will be the most sourced profile if someone took the time to put all the newspaper articles and other stuff in her profile.

For existing profiles, I nominate:

1 - The profile I did for Richard Waring, which has 92 unique source citations (albeit, fewer sources, since multiple footnotes may refer to different parts of the same source)

2 - The profile I did for Thomas Ashley, which has only 69 unique source citations, but fewer instances of multiple footnotes referring to different parts of the same source

Excellent job on those profiles, Chase!  I applaud your work.
