All Pre-1500 badge holders....please work these errors this week.

+17 votes

All Pre-1500 badge holders, please go to your suggestions list....under My Wikitree menu.    Please work the following errors on your watchlist.

511 Unique names (spelling)

723 Prefix in First Name

753 Prefix in Nicknames

I think you will find that many of these are false errors and require no work, other than to mark them as false errors, but, you may find some other issues.

Once you have worked those errors on your own watchlist.   

We can all start working

I'll try and do some. I have been working on reducing 511 errors in Yorkshire for ages. I had not got to the pre 1500 ones yet, but will make a start. I don't have any pre 1500 profiles on my watch list.

Will probably aim for those error codes on the Norwegian list.

You also have 20 811 errors on your own watchlist....those would be great to work!

I know :) (They're all part of the Norwegian list, too :) )

Forgot to add that I'm slowly working on 723 errors in my watchlist (I started out with 201 !!!) and the good thing is you can do 5-10 when you have a spare 10 minutes.

I've also managed my impulse to start investigating and adding sources etc etc, and just concentrated on the simple errors, so should at least half that list by the end of the week, if not get it down further.

So thanks Robin, it has been a great idea to work on pre-1500 suggestions in this way.
