I added ref tags which are very necessary.  A big problem is that for sources for the census records you are only using a link to Ancestry.com which for instance for me only offers a chance to join Ancestry.com and doesn't give the actual citation needed to find the records.  

You can click changes on the profile and see what was changed.  If you don't like it you can restore the profile to the way it was.  Best of luck!

On that particular profile, the sources appeared. I removed the unsourced tag. PS: Once you add sources, on the top of the page where the word Biography is, there should be something that looks like {{source needed}} above it... take that out.
