Hi. I'm interested in the picture you uploaded to James Butler but it has no provenance. Seems to be wearing the Arms of England (when they claimed France). Looks like no picture of the Duke that I have ever seen. Where is it from?

Hi Lynden,

Thank you for editing the profile for This is still an unsourced profile, so I wonder what you based your changes to the dates on?

Hi Lynden

As Susie mentioned in our newsletter, one of us would check in to see how you are doing, so here I am :)

Firstly on behalf of us all, I would like to say a big thank you for all the hard work you are putting into the Project. Your work on a number of aspects with our profile improvements team is greatly appreciated.

We would love your feedback and input on what you would like to see happening within the project as we move forward.

Do you have anything special you would like to see in the project, or have something you would like to explore that we can add into the project?

Please feel free to post your thoughts in our Google Group, or you can send me a PM, either will be great.

Thank You

Lynden, do you happen to speak any other languages? Would you check out our languages template and add it to your biography? For example you might add

{{ Languages | en | ro-2 | he-1 }}

to the top of your biography if you speak English natively, intermediate Rumanian and basic Hebrew, or you could use de-4 to specify near-native German or ru-2 for intermediate Russian, and so forth up to ten languages.

It really helps to know who speaks all the different languages used on WikiTree! If there is a language you speak that is missing from our categories, I would be happy to add it. If you only speak English, you're very welcome to use this text to make that clear:

{{ Languages | en }}

Rather than remove the text at the top of the profile - presumably from the Presidents Project - I noted that a citation was needed for it in the biography. While Henry's profile supports his daughter Mary married Col. William Randolph, I do not see that Mary's profile has support for anything other than her death date.

I would normally advise that support be moved to the appropriate profile, but the WikiTree widget showing that WikiTree says Mary is Thomas Jefferson's grandmother is not support, it's circular logic. Just wanted to let you know why I was deleting the image from Henry's profile.

Cheers, Liz

Hi Lynden - I don't think adding a widget from WikiTree is appropriate for Henry Isham-12's profile & it certainly does not satisfy the "Citation needed" note in the text (that US President Thomas Jefferson's grandmother was Mary Isham).

The scope of the Magna Carta project ends with the Gateway (which Isham-12 is), although the project's policy is to include in the biography any children whom Richardson lists (and daughter Mary m Randolph is listed, with a Richardson citation, so the project supports Mary as a child of Henry Isham). However, documentation of Mary's children/grandchildren should be done on their profiles, not Henry's.

The statement on Henry's profile that his daughter Mary was Thomas Jefferson's grandmother is (still) not supported.

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.
