Notes on my criteria for WikiTree Sources

Sources for people who are living

  • my personal knowledge
  • second hand information obtained from a close relative or acquaintance
  • Information from a local history publication or document

Sources for people who are deceased

  • Primary Source - a source that validates an individual's lineage, such as:
    • a birth, marriage or death registration with the name of the individual as well as the names of the parents
    • a census record that identifies an individual as the son or daughter of the head of the household
  • Secondary Source - a source that validates the existence of an individual but does not provide any verification of his or her lineage, such as
    • a birth, marriage or death registration with the name of the individual and possibly their spouse, but no references to the names of the parents
    • a census record where the individual is the head of the household, or a resident that is not a descendant of the head
    • second hand information obtained from a close relative or acquaintance
    • Information from a local history publication or document
  • I had originally identified my sources as 'Primary Sources' and 'Secondary Sources'; however, this designation did not work well with some of the other features of WikiTree. I have since removed this designation.

Physical Documents

  • if the source is a physical document, a copy should be uploaded as a source image to one of individuals referenced in the document. Other entries can refer to the document with a link to the individual with the source document, or other individuals referenced in the document can be identified and the document will automatically appear on their profile.


  • the booklets 'Cape Breton to Alberta' and 'Keeping Up With the Jones' were distributed to family members when they were completed in 1979 and 1983 respectively. I have a few copies in my possession, but they were never formally published.
  • the James Genealogy referenced below, is a hand written document that my mother M. Patricia Jones received along with a letter from Hazel (Backstrom) James in January of 2001.
  • In profiles where information has been obtained from the above documents, the documents will be cited as sources since the authors are direct descendents and their information reliable.
  • Secondary sources may be referenced through a link to FamilySearch.org or another service. Ideally, a free service so that the source can be viewed without requiring a fee.

Links to Documents

  • Where possible, there should be a direct link to the actual document record rather than referencing it through another service. The best example of this would be a direct link to a Canada Census through the Canadian Government Archives as opposed to a link to the census through FamilySearch.org


  • My personal information entered by myself at registration.

Hi Ian,

Wales Project Semi-Annual Check-In

Thank you for being a member of the Wales Project. You may recall membership requires at least one contribution to the project each 6 months. A contribution includes creation of and modification to Wales related profiles.

Have you been able to contribute?

It is recognized some members are active. Thank you for your work. (There is no viable method to determine which members have been active in the Wales Project.)

Do you desire to stay on your current project team(s)? Which teams are you most active in? Are there other teams you would like to join or become more active in?

Also, do you have any feedback on what the project is doing well and anything we could do better in the future?

Please respond to this message by posting a reply below or sending me a private message. I look forward to hearing from you.

Hi Stuart,

Thanks for contacting me to and yes I would like to stay on the project in my data doctor role. I have been very active improving biographies of profiles I manage and since many of them have a connection to Wales hopefully they quality as contributions. That said, I have not been doing many specific data doctor tasks but will try and up my contributions in the coming weeks/months.

I am a bit uncertain as to any specific goals the Wales project teams may be working on, so I need to investigate those further to see if there are areas where I could contribute.Please let me know if there are any teams that are short handed and I will see if I can help.

On a personal note, I am waiting to get a date for heart surgery. Likely early in 2022. When it happens I will be out of commission for awhile, but as I begin recovery I am hoping to contribute quite a bit as I won't be able to do much else.

posted by Ian Jones
Thanks Ian for responding and for your contributions on the Wales Project. I will let the leaders know you are available for work on additional teams.

I had a pacemaker installed several years ago. That keeps my heart from going to slow and I take a pill to keep it from going to fast. So, all is well. Likely your procedure is more serious. Keep me informed.

Hi Ian!

Thanks for contributing to Puritan Great Migration profiles over the last six months. Every little bit helps, so please keep those edits coming!

Like all WikiTree projects we check in with team members twice per year and it's that time again. Please respond within the next two weeks to let me know:

  1. If you'd like to continue as a PGM project team member
  2. If you're happy with the team you're on (Research and/or Profile Improvement) or if you'd like to make a change
  3. Optionally, what you like since the reboot back in May or what you think could be improved. This could be something about Discord, or Google Groups, or managed profile spreadsheets, or challenge participation or really anything. If you like everything the way it is, you can let me know that too :)

If you'd like to tell me about a particular project or family you're working on, I'd love to hear about that as well.

Please respond to this message by posting a reply below or sending me a private message on WikiTree. I look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks!

Hi Brad,

Yes, I would like to continue as a member of the PGM Data Doctors team and am hoping to increase my contribution level now that winter is coming and the golf course is closed. I have not made many contributions in the past few months as I have been focused on the profiles that I manage. Ever since I turned on 'Check Profile Completeness' I have been working through my profiles and upgrading their Biographies with in-line references and better sources. Also, checking all the status indicators that I never entered when I created them.

I am nearly done, so should have more time to help out with the PGM stuff.

Hi Ian,

Thank you so much for all your contributions to WikiTree in the last six months, and especially to the Wales Project. It’s been wonderful to have you as part of the team as we work together to increase the quality and quantity of Welsh Profiles.

I have you down as being on the Data Doctors Team. Is this right? How are things going? Do you have any questions? What can we do to support you? Would you like to change any of your teams? Do you want to continue in the Wales Project moving forwards?

I look forward to hearing back from you with all the above and I hope to see you on Discord soon.

Thanks once again,

Olivia, Project Coordinator for Wales :-)

Thanks Olivia,

I am enjoying my work on the Wales Data Doctors team and would like to continue with it. Haven't done a great deal the last couple months as I have been cleaning up my own profiles - I turn on Profile Completeness and discovered my profiles had a multitude of errors. Mostly things like Mother's and Father's status not given, so easy to fix, but it takes time to go through each profile and make the changes. When I do Data Doctor work, I have mostly focused on Find A Grave issues.

In regards to Discord, I was on it for a long time but there was so little activity, I quit using it. Seems easier to communicate through the Wales Project Team Communications to Google Groups. Not sure I want another hardly used app on my system.

Hi Ian, thanks for your prompt reply. It's great that you're working on FAG issues in DD and I know I need to check out my own profile suggestions so you're brilliant for doing your own. You will have seen we have a new Team Leader for Data Doctors. I'm sure he'll be in touch with you all soon. With regards to Discord, it's totally up to you. Things have picked up on there and people are collaborating more, but I understand if you want to focus on the Google group instead. Let me know if I can help with anything else. Olivia :-)

Hi Ian, I wish to thank you for your work on PGM Beyond New England profiles. Also I would be interested in knowing if you would like to remain on the PGM Beyond New England list.

Thank you. Cheryl Skordahl PGM Leader (Aldrich-908)

Thanks Cheryl. I really have not done much work on the PGM Beyond New England project as most of my PGM ancestors stayed in New England for several generations until the revolutionary war when they came to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. I have done some work on both the PGM and Mayflower Projects but you may as well take me off the PGM Beyond list as it is not really applicable to me.

Thanks for your support.

Hi Ian, Thanks for writing to me. Somehow, I didn't include the Find A Grave information. perhaps I found it after I posted and forgot to add to John Morgan's page.

I did find John on Find A Grave. Here is what they have:

Rev John Morgan, Jr BIRTH Aug 1839 Monmouthshire, Wales DEATH 21 Nov 1901 (aged 62) Newark, Essex County, New Jersey, USA BURIAL Woodland Cemetery Ironton, Lawrence County, Ohio, USA PLOT Section 4 MEMORIAL ID 110023102

Obituary Notice in Ironton newspaper Rev John Morgan Dead Mrs. Charles Alexander received a telegram last Thursday announcing the death of her father, Rev. John Morgan, at the home of his son Rev W. H. [William Henry] Morgan, in Newark, N. J. Mr. Morgan was 63 years of age and had been ailing for a year with stomach trouble and a complication of ailments, and his death was not unexpected. The deceased was an old resident of this county and served in the ministry for many years. His last active church work was in the Culbertson M.E. circuit. The remains arrived here Saturday afternoon and the funeral services took place Sunday from the Wesley M.E. Church. Burial at Woodland.

Hi Ian, So pleased you've joined the Puritan Great Migration Project per your October 6 g2g request. How are things going, any questions? I'd be happy to try to assist as you adjust to working with these PGM profiles.

Have you discovered the PGM reliable source page yet? It's so helpful and can be found here: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Puritan_Great_Migration_Project_Reliable_Sources

Currently the focus in PGM is reducing the number of profiles in maintenance categories. PGM profiles that need clean-up, research, and/or biographies and can be found here: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:Puritan_Great_Migration_Project_Maintenance_Categories Time available? pitch in here.

Put a note on my comment box or private message me if I can help you.

you can upload a gedcom and compare it to the Wiki Tree. But I would suggest you start with a small gedcom (100 profiles) to learn how the GEDCOMpare works.

Here's the help page for it:
