@ Magnus , I of course do agree about the need for and importance of adding primary sources and that's what I said also :
Than we start looking for primary sources , like the church records Carrie is adding, so baptisms of children, wills, deeds and everything is going to be added to the different profile(s). If we have found and added these primary sources, that's when the hopefully second and last trimming can start, the ancestry sources than are replaced by just these primary ones and maybe some reliable secondary sources we all can watch.
and what I mean by not being ready for review is :
1. you are already asking and looking for duplicate and maybe wrong children ...we are not ready for that because : the maternal grandparents seem to be duplicates of the mother, the paternal grandfather also looks like just a duplicate with wrong dates of his son . These things still have to be solved as well.
2. We are now looking for and adding baptism (and other) records (+ primary and or reliable secondary sources) to the profiles of the parents. To be able to sort out and know for sure how many children Marie (her different husbands) had and from which marriage / husband. Only if we found all of those we can start to look at and sort out the children, merge duplicate children if needed and so on.
3. So point 1 until 4 and point 7 of your review , is what we now still and in fact are working on and until we have found all baptism records and sources, we probably are not going to be able to, or merge any of them, because sometimes there was more than one child with the same name, so to make sure and to prevent mistakes we now first need sources for all children.
4. Leaves point 5 and 6 , I think you mean just about all foot/source notes and ancestry.com sources we can't access if we are not ancestry members ? This is also something we do when the profile is more finished and when we have found and added all info and primary sources there are to find , that's mostly when the profile is going to be reviewed and reedited /reorganized, so with just one Bio and sources, because than the sources we can't look at can be replaced with ones we all can view or check .
I moved this to the bottom because I think a profile should be about the person, his or her live is what the profile is meant for. A profile of course is not the same as a forum (G2G) or comment box, a short note at the top or somewhere in the Bio is fine especially when we are still working on profiles, or have some problems differences that need to be solved or explained, but for questions or reviews like this I think it's better to use the comment boxes or start a G2G and add it there, if we all would place reviews like this on top of all profiles I think you can imagine how some profiles would look like eeh ;) Research notes are placed at the bottom normally so that's why I added this to the bottom as well, it's less distracting and the profile stays more easy to read. Many NNS profiles because of all merges and info that came along or was added later are way too long, so that's something we have to think of and try to prevent as well of course.
And for the quotes or copied and pasted info, we can take a look at that of course and remove what is not really needed or important and maybe replace or rephrase it with just a little bit of the info and in our own words
And of course we all are still hoping for a solution that really would prevent and stop the import of duplicates of these so very popular Pre-1700 lineages, it indeed probably will kill the idea of a common family tree if more members means more imports of again the same lineages.
Some profiles/families are merged about 30 or more times already, so I guess you can imagine the amount of work it is to integrate all these gedcom Bio's into one more or less still easy to read and not too long Bio...
