Please let me know what it needs to be "wiki-perfect". I am a work in progress ;-)

Your first citation appears to have been split in two, M. You may have extraneous spaces or line breaks, which should be removed. You also have an extraneous letter at the end of your surname in that citation.

And if you want to create links for the WikiTree IDs, you need to enclose them in double brackets instead of single brackets (you would need to update your name to your WikiTree ID to create a link for it).

Other than those minor points, MT's profile is shaping up nicely!
Thank you, I'm an old hand at research but a novice at citations. I'll do it again & hopefully remember. Thanks for your input.

First I don't believe there is any profile that is "Wiki-perfect", some are better than others but none is "Perfect". Having said that this is a fine start. The next step would be to write a short biography using the facts in the data section and then find and add inline sources. Don't worry about getting everything perfect for now just do what you can and keep trying to improve both your skills and the profiles you manage and over time you will notice a big improvement to both.

Thank you Dale, try try try. I figured before I get too many profiles out there I'd better figure out how to do this correctly. I appreciate your help and will keep the style guide handy.
