I might be able to help with this but I have a question. In the info above you say that you need to pass the pre-1700 test but your page it says if you have not passed the test you can "leave these errors to Data Doctors who are Pre-1700 certified" which is correct? And if you do need to pass this test, where is it found?

I am not interested in helping with the pre-1700 but can help with the more recent profiles.

Let me know. Thanks!

Peggy

I'd like to join, but be aware: I'm more about quality than quantity, and I'm not fast.

I'm a retired copyeditor, indexer, and writer who's slowly working through my Rambo lineage and associated profiles to improve them, identify inconsistencies and potential merges, and write or edit original biographies. I've also worked as a library tech in a special library.

Cheers, Deborah
