Hi Laura you seem to have created a few duplicates for the German Schwarzburg family. I'll propose some merges but there are probably others.

If you are planning on creating anymore royal/noble families then please have a look at the Naming Standards for the European Aristocrats project Thank you

Hi Laura,

Thank you for adding pre-1700 profiles to our shared tree :)

You may not be aware, but many things have changed since you self certified for pre-1700.

The profiles you have added recently all have "unsourced family tree" as a source, which is not acceptable now for pre-1700 profiles.

Please re-acquaint yourself with this page: and if you are unsure on what constitutes a reliable source, please collaborate with the project which covers the profile. They will be more than happy to assist you :)

Thank you for all your valuable contributions to our shared tree :)

Welcome Laura, what Volga villages are your ancestors from? I have been a member for about 6 weeks and have found a lot of information about Walter but not much about Hoffental. People are very helpful & collaborative.
