Some of my current WikiTree activities that may not be obvious from my badges:
The table (table format at Space:Table of Known Ancestors) below summarizes the extent of the information on my ancestry that is included in Wikitree. For the ten generations previous to mine, it shows the number of possible ancestors, the number of these ancestors who are currently identified/documented included in WikiTree, and the percentage of the possible ancestors who are identified here. Cumulative (overall) totals are also provided. Generations 9 and 10 are not up to date.
"Identified" ancestors include some with unknown last names at birth. It also includes some questionable identifications and people that I have not researched.
|ANCESTORS BY GENERATION||OVERALL ANCESTORS (CUMULATIVE)|
|Gen. #||Direct Relation to Self||Dates of Birth||Matches||#||# Identified in WikiTree||% Identified in WikiTree||Total #||Total # Identified||Total % Identified|
|3||great grandparent||1850s to 1870s||2nd Cousins||8||8||100.0%||14||14||100.0%|
|4||2nd great grandparent||1810s to 1850s||3rd Cousins||16||16||100.0%||30||30||100.0%|
|5||3rd great grandparent||1770s to 1820s||4th Cousins||32||32||100.0%||62||62||100.0%|
|6||4th great grandparent||1740s to 1790s||5th Cousins||64||52||81.2%||126||114||90.5%|
|7||5th great grandparent||1700s to 1760s||6th Cousins||128||89||69.5%||254||203||79.9%|
|8||6th great grandparent||1670s to 1740s||7th Cousins||256||141*||55.1%||510||344||67.5%|
|9||7th great grandparent||1650s to 1700s||8th Cousins||512||250*||48.8%||1022||594||58.1%|
|10||8th great grandparent||1590s to 1670s||9th Cousins||1024||401*||39.2%||2046||981||47.9%|
*There are several duplicates (people who appear on multiple branches of the tree) in these generations (see "Endogamy" section below for a list). These people are counted more than once in the numbers for both possible ancestors and identified ancestors. Cumulative numbers of distinct individuals in my WikiTree-documented ancestry are: 343 at generation 8, 570 at generation 9, and 934 at generation 10.
See this page.
Autosomal DNA matching with me may be complicated by the number of ancestors who are represented in my lineage more than once. These distant ancestors' DNA may be somewhat amplified in my DNA. Also, if the same ancestor appears on different branches of my family tree, that may reduce the chance of triangulating a particular DNA segment to a particular common ancestor.
Identified ancestors appearing in multiple lines of my ancestry include (this list is not yet complete):

Apollos Paul Rivoire father of Paul Revere had a brother Abraham Rivoire who was named after his father who was Abraham Isaac Rivoire ... my 7th ggrandfather ...because of the many spellings there is much confusion ...we have a handed down story that Paul Revere was a 1st cousin to my 6th ggrandmother. Also they all attended the Sleepy Hollow Church(baptismal records) and lived in Westchester county. Help me to sort this out please.

Thank you for the interest and sources on the Holland line. I did a little checking on my Holland line that I have on Ancestry and have added a source for Nathaniel Holland Jr. (Holland-727) and Mary White-21951 to images on their profile pages. Hopes this will help you in your research.
Source: U.S., New England Marriages Prior to 1700 for Nathaniel Holland.
Thank you! Holland-3338

Removed the category from Provoost-2, it's from the time when they all still had a lot of duplicates and we were trying to sort them all out and indeed no longer needed ;)
Greets and have a wonderful day,
ps: feel free to remove the category from profiles where it's no longer relevant or needed no need to ask girl

Is that still the current thinking about fraud categories? I seem to recall a proposal to only have the category on the fraudulent profiles & a research note in profiles that weren't (and of course I can't find that now).
Anyway, Watkins-311 is sourced. It's a real person in a real family. If the intent is to alert people that the family name might be tainted by the fraud, doesn't having the info in the Research Notes section do that?
