1776 Profile Improvements Team

Goals

Profile Improvements team members produce interesting, well-written, sourced biographies for the profiles of American Revolution ancestors.

Profile improvement often requires enhancing the work of others, to achieve a result that meets the Wiki standards. Many times, a profile will have no biography at all, and little or no sources, so research may need to be done.

Guidelines

Biographies

  • Before starting a new profile, check for an existing profile.
  • Follow the style guidelines:.
  • Do not make changes to a PPP (Project-protected Profile) unless you have permission.
  • Always include the 1776 sticker if the person qualifies.
  • NSSAR and DAR stickers may also be applied, but no more than 3 stickers.
  • Add any appropriate categories.
  • Check the family connections.

Sources

  • Use in-line source coding.
  • When possible, cite military or pension records for proof of service.
  • Official grave markers can be used as sources (include a link).
  • If the profile includes pre-1700 information, adhere to the pre-1700 source guidelines.
  • Check all links to make sure they work.

Collaboration

  • If you have a doubt about changes you want to make, reach out to the profile manager before getting started.
  • Leave comments in the message box on the profile.
  • Post a question to 1776 Google Group or to G2G if you need assistance.
  • Give everyone the benefit of the doubt.
