Other Protected Profiles

Please list profiles here that are being managed by the project and don't fit into one of the above lists. This will help us keep track, and also give us ideas for other historical Canadians who could be covered by this project.


Non-Open Profiles

These are WikiTree profiles that have a privacy setting other than "Open" so the category cannot be added to the profile. This will help us keep track, and also give us ideas for other historical Canadians who could be covered by this project.

Data Base Errors - Canada

We all make mistakes and as WikiTreer's we know that mistakes happen. As a project we should be devoting a part of our time working to correct Database errors for all things Canada. Please add a bit of time to your WikiTree schedule to work on correcting

Canadian Database Errors
