HI Jo,

If you would share with us the profile in question it might help with a better quality response. As always thanks for choosing wikitree.

Best Regards

Thank you for your reply.  I kept my question brief to accomodate a character limit on text in the form

After importing the records to say, RootsMagic, I haven't found any that were formatted for sources. The information is there, but it's text in the notes field of the record.  I'm glad to have it-I can go through each record and clean up the format there.  But, before investing time in cleanup, it seemed prudent to ask about an alternative.

Is there an improved format I can use for records here in WikiTree that will shape the information so its export is tagged for source formatting?

If you're aware of WT profiles that export neatly and can be used without too much cleanup in another genealogy software, could you post a few profile numbers?

Thank you.
