Hi Lynden, I've noticed you added quite a few sources on the profile of William Fisher, but unfortunately none of them look to be suitable as they are all user submitted genealogies or other online family sites that don't cite any appropriate sources.

There have been discussion on G2G recently and overall there is a movement towards making sure that pre-1700 profiles are sourced with reliable sources either primary sources or secondary sources that cite primary material. This goes doubly for pre-1500 profiles.

I know it is tempting to add any source and go back later to add better sources, but this in my view causes more problems than it solves. Thank you.

Hi Lynden, I had a quick question about the portrait you uploaded for Despenser-26. What is the source? The portrait is actually a Holbein (who lived in the 1500s at Henry VIII's court) or a copy of his portrait, and was thought originally a portrait of Catherine Howard (Henry VIII's 5th wife). It's now thought to be Elizabeth Seymour.,_Lady_Cromwell#Portrait

And turns out, you can see the same portrait on Seymour-115. Thanks for clearing it up!

Hello 9th cousin! I've handed profile management for Mary Bridgman over to you. I'm trying to trim back my profiles to direct ancestors, so I'm always happy to hand the great-aunts etc. off!

Hi Lynden,

What evidence/doc do you have that points to Ann Watkins as the spouse of Abraham Estes ?

Thanks again Lynden. Your contribution in working on profiles that were in the Kent and Essex county top level categories is really appreciated

Hi Lynden, I have taken over sponsoring the Kent county as well, and have the same issue as I did with the Essex county. You seem to have some profiles there too on the Kent category page to be migrated if possible - If you have time to look at them too, it would be appreciated. No rush or pressure! Thanks again. Gillian
