Historically-significant ancestor - yet no children listed.

+2 votes
Maybe a dumb question - but how can this be an "historically-significant ancestor" if there are no descendants listed?

It looks like there is an Unmerged Match pending on that profile. If it is correct then he would be merged with a profile where he does have children.

Yes, but the profile was locked a year and a half before the unmatched merge was made.  

I guess my question goes back to marking  (& making a distinction) between an historical ancestor & a prominent historical figure.
The historically-significant ancestor designation was never meant to mean that someone was actually an ancestor, ie. had children. Also, just because a profile has no children attached doesn't mean that that person didn't actually have children.

In any case, it's no longer called "historically-significant ancestor"; that was changed a while back to "project-protected profile". All it means is that it falls under the management of a current or future project.
Thank you Lianne, I was wondering about that - reading the post on the bulletin board for this profile where it stated "ancestor" was a bit puzzling.

The person is from a significantly historical family. The "Tudors".  That should pretty well describe him/her whether they had children or not.

If that is the standard for locked status  - then shouldn't Tudor Vychan ap Goronwy & ancestors be PPP?

I am just trying to get an understanding of the criteria is for PPP.
that wasn't mentioned in your subject above about a PPP status., When you mentioned a locked status, that had to be a red button status, which can only be changed by the profile manager or a supervisor.
The way I understand it "locked" is for protecting - red button is dealing with privacy of the profile.

The changes page for this profile should show what I am referring to when I state 'locked'  (under the date of 9 May 2012)

Locked is for PPP it's seperate from from the privacy status.
For the record, here's the help page that explains what profiles should be project-protected (aka locked): http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project_protecting_and_merging#Which_profiles_should_be_protected.3F
At no time whatsoever was "Locked" referred too except in the comments. I answered the question.  I am not a supervisor, but I do know of three in this conversation are.  If you know the profile is locked, then unlock it so the profile can be worked on.
Thank you Michelle.
Much appreciated   Lianne
Thank you Mary - Michelle Hartley had just explained 'locked' & 'private' in the thread.

Appreciate the input.
you're welcome, Michelle.
