Hi, David,

I have added some sources to one of the profiles you wanted me to look over for you, Daniel Grantham. If at all possible we like to use sources from a free site and include a link to the document or transcription if available, Of course, not all sources are going to be available on free sites and I like to transcribe and then cite with as much info as I can to make it easier for others to find.

You can see examples on my father's profile here. Make sure you don't have an adblocker running on WikiTree as it blocks some ancestry links if you're using Chrome.

Click here for tips on citing sources of various types.

Hope that helps.

PPS Did you discover that the tags on your profile are clickable links to a page of other people who have that tag? You can add more, up to 20 in total.
