You have a stray comma at the end of your link, James.

Here is the corrected link, pending your edit:

hello James,

I see you have added sources for Québec notaries.  While that is good, the location for this data doesn't really fit, since the profession of notaries is worldwide.  You will notice a sub-category of ''Notaires de Nouvelle-France'' in there, which I created for the notaries that fit Québécois project.  I don't know if anybody has really worked on creating regional sub-categories for this profession.

I would suggest that all those various sources and references be transferred to a free space page which can be tagged with the category Notaries to link together and be easy to find..

Ok, I created a free space but do not see the Sub-Catagory for "N" to add it. How do I do that? Thanks.
can you give me a link to the page?
thank you, have added appropriate categories for it, the page will now show up under those categories.  For future reference, the category picker that you use on profiles also works on free space pages.

You don't need permission to add profiles to a category.  You only need to provide evidence on the profile that the person fits the category.

Hebert, thanks, I still want to know to proof my info and let me know where exactly to place it. Thank you.
James, I take it you have an ancestor who was a Notary, and you have a source for that info?  All you need to do is edit the profile, and add [[Category:Notaires]] at the very top of the biography, before even the ==Biography== marker.  You would cite your source either in the text between <ref></ref> tags, or just place the citation after the <references/> tag (one way or the other, not both).
No, sorry Herbert, I do not have an ancestor I want to post.  Will just post what I have and let everyone chime in, thanks.

Thanks for the star, Susan!  smiley
