Please check your work after making relationship changes. https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Best-3776, for whatever reason you had added her father as a husband. It looks like you made some initial errors with her daughter. Please, again, slow down and check your work.

As requested by the Data Doctors project, please slow down and check your work. In cleaning up profiles you are leaving source information under the biography section...see https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Kaminski-380 There are several like these.

It was suggested that you look at all the documentation regarding this DBE error. Take a look at https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:811:_Profile_After_Merge-Biography_Example Clean up is more that just removing duplicate headings, it is cleaning up the profile and removing GEDCOM junk, etc.

Thanks for all your efforts.

I noticed that you added some sources and births to some profiles, but the data does not match. Can you put a note into the biography explaining the differences, please?

Thanks for all your efforst....

I checked both profiles could you please let me know what is wrong with them

Cheers Helen

posted by Helen (Bowden) Edwards
Thank you for additional sources that prove your dates. The census records, which were the only records on the profile when I looked at them did not match the birth years.

When records indicate multiple years, adding a note about why you chose the date you did provides that necessary explanation for others.

Thank you for your contributions.

I noticed recent changes you made for "Jarring f.Jönsson-3" that I think could be better with more knowledge about Swedish names and customs. The entry as it was didn't follow Wikitree guidelines, but the changes also don't, so I don't see the point.

First you for some reason changed current name "Jarring f.Jönsson" to "Jarring f Jönsson". The abbreviation "f." means "född"=born. This person is born Jönsson (so that's what the LNAB actually should be) but the current/last name is just "Jarring". Then you changed the birth location to something with "Sweden" at the end, although it should have been "Sverige". And finally you changed death location from "Viken (M)" into "Viken M". Neither way of writing it is ideal, but the one before your change was at least easy to understand for anyone who knows about Swedish placenames, whereas I think it's unclear what the "M" is in the new version. I guess I'm saying that if you don't really understand the data you see there is a high risk you don't really make it better when changing it.

Hi Helen,

I just finished the editing of https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Mundell-19 . It's a merge that I proposed and you completd. I'm still kind of a newbie to WikiTree... still finding my way, so I hope that I did things alright. At any rate, I left the profile in a far better status than it was initially. Thank you for your help. Jim

Thank you for initiating the merge of Berger-11 and Berger-2792. They most definitely are the same individual. I believe her current last name should be Lozier and the information I have concerning her siblings is correct. Her brother George was my great grandfather. We were very close to many members of this family. The information I have for her parents is also correct. I am fairly new to WikiTree so I think I need to initiate a merge of Erger-1 and Berger-681 and also Zimmer-5 and Zimmer-408.

Hi Helen,

I reversed your change of countryname in the profile of Gerrit de Bree. The guideline is to "use their convention", in this case Dutch language: Nederland not Netherlands.

posted by Jan Terink
Hi Helen,

You changed the current last name of Sara Geertruijda Eijtinger to Bos; I cancelled this change and posted following comment on Sara's profile: The current last name of Dutch citizens is the one that appears in the death record; in principle all Dutch women keep their maiden name as Dutch citizen, before and after 1811. The last name of Sara in her death certificate is Eijtinger and should NOT be changed to Bos, the name of her last husband.

I approved the merge and added sources and a bio for Nellie Vienna Blanchard, wife of Geroge Lester Westover and my great grandmother. For some reason the text merge is still showing a spinning wheel. This is what I added for the Bio and sources:

I carefully checked to make sure Mabel Clara Wright Whillock (aka Barlow) was not duplicated, suddenly there's a duplication and you wish to merge data. Please explain.
Hi Penny

There are 2 profiles of the same person. You are the profile manager fot both one entered 24 nov 2019 the other 18 mar 2020 they just need to be merged into one. As they are showing up as a Data Doctor error its easy to make a double entry. Regards Helen

Hi Helen, please do not edit our project profiles as you did here (just one example lof your recent edits I now have to fix) - after another data doctor had messed up our sources your edits compound the errors already made ... If bio's need work, please post to the leader and the project research coordinator - we will take the neccesary action (we understand the context). Thanks!

Why are you making these changes? "edited the Biography, Birth Place and Death Place for Iola (Taylor) Ketchum (1902-2002). (811 Uncleaned profile after merge Data Doctor)" What merge? Please explain your rationale.

Sorry! I see that it was correcting info from my merge of 9 Nov 1915. I thought it was from something more recent.

Helen, thank you for helping me with source formatting on my Breier/Brier/Braier/Brajer paternal lines. No matter how hard I try, I can’t figure out the easy to follow instructions. Reminds me of trying to put together my grandson’s Christmas present one year- after 5 hours I threw all the pieces in my car & had the store do it. My learning style is for someone to visually show me. Yikes!

Hi Helen, we appreciate the work of data doctors on the South African profiles. However - I reset the bio's and then re-edited again of Botha-44 and her sister. Please collate data; we do not remove any facts from the bio's and we collate in named reference fashion. If you are not sure, do what other data doctors do and send a message. Regards, Philip van der Walt, custodial profile manager & research coordinator.

Hi Helen, Thanks for your Data Doctor activities. Efforts such as yours is the best way to maintain the integrity of the site in my opinion.

Just one query, you recently adjusted an abbreviation prefix on Girling-525 for "Lance Bombadier”, however I am wondering if the adjustment should be ? My google search reveals "Bombardier (Bdr) and lance-bombardier (LBdr or L/Bdr) are used by the British Army in the Royal Artillery and Royal Horse Artillery. “ Regards, and thanks again for your activities.

Hi Helen,

I've not heard back from your regarding the England Project check-in. I've sent two messages to you previously. I hope you are ok.

One of the requirements for England Project membership is that you respond to the check-ins. Requirements can be found on the England Project page. I've gone ahead and removed you from the project. We are sorry to see you go but you would be most welcome to rejoin via the G2G sign up post at any time.

Best wishes,

Susie, England Project Leader :-)

Hi Helen,

I sent you a message a while ago on behalf of the England Project Leaders and have yet to heard back from you. I hope you are well.

One of the requirements of membership in the England Project is that you respond to the six-monthly check-ins.

If I don’t hear from you in the next week or so I’ll assume you no longer wish to be in the project and go ahead and remove you. You would, of course, be most welcome to rejoin at any time via the G2G sign-up post.

Best wishes,

Susie :-)

Hi Helen,

On behalf of the England Leaders, I wanted to say a huge thank you for all your contributions towards the project in the past six months as a Team Member for Data Doctors and Buckinghamshire. We've achieved a great deal during this time and we couldn't have done it without you.

Are you happy to stay in your current teams and the project as a whole? Are there any other teams you'd like to join? What are we doing well, and what would you like to see us doing differently moving forwards?

Please respond to this message via e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks,

Susie, England Project Leader :-)

Hi Helen. I'm looking forward to working with you on those profiles.

Family Search is asking for the same merge generated by their search engines

I made the mistake of putting Wilson down instead of Vaughn on Anney Whited Vaughn which is how it shows up in her sources. I don't know where the Rose comes from as Family Search is offering. Do you? Are you a relative or a volunteer cleaning this up?
