You might find some information on sources that will help you on the England project https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:England_Project_Reliable_Sources
Pre-1700 ancestors can be shared by many descendants, so collaboration is essential. You can learn more about joining the community in How To #3 and in the Project FAQ.
Sources are very important here on Wikitree, especially on Pre-1700 profiles. It is how we show where we got the info and helps others find it too. Find out more about Pre-1700 Profile sourcing here and source citation info here.
The United States project or England project may fit your research focus. If not, use the Pre-1700 Projects list to find other possibilities. Review the project page to learn about resources and guidelines as well as how to collaborate with the project members.
If you have any questions, click “reply” below this message and I will get back to you.

As you have been a member of WikiTree for a few weeks now I thought I would check in to see how you are getting on with the site.

As you go along you may want to consider adding more tags. The clickable tags we follow and the comments we make about them at WikiTree help us collaborate with other members. Click the green tags on your top right of your profile page and see others following the same things you are researching. The more tags you add (20 max.) that include surnames, locations, periods of history or other genealogical interests, the more links to community research options you will have. This link may help you learn more about tags.
Tags should be single surnames, locations, or genealogical interests related to your family research. Comments should relate to why those tags interest you. Everyone does this a little differently but you can have a look at the tags on my profile to get an idea. Hope that helps!

We are newbies in setting up a digital genealogy tree. We have a lot of information from varied sources (some contradictory). We have made some missteps and need to remove a couple of duplicate profiles.
Please advise how to do this, e.g. Elizabeth Garrison Lawrence 5793.
Also having problem with siblings being tagged as 'half when not.
Thanks for your help, Jim and Donna Lawrence
We were all new to this at one point, and we have all made errors, some of us, have made them more than once (me). One thing to remember is errors happen, and they can be put right, and you are not the first people to make the error, and you won;t be the last.
With duplicate profiles, they will need to be merged together, f you go to the bottom of your profile, you will see a section "Matches and Merges". Click on the link "initiate a merge"
That will take you to the page where you have Lawrence-5793 as ID1, then add the other ID in ID2, then click on Initiate a merge, if you are the profile manager for both profiles, then you can complete the merge, otherwise you will need the other profile manager to approve the merge, they will be sent a message asking them to approve it.
With the problem of siblings being classed as "half", that usually happens when one of the parents has not been attached to them, once you add the missing parent, then the "half" will disappear
I hope this helps, any problems please let me know
