About Profile Improvers

  • Sourcerers - find sources for profiles. The ideal is to provide a source for each fact on a profile, but even one source helps to orientate genealogists to the profile and confirms the person's existence. Family tree sources are not acceptable, and preferably contemporaneous sources such as baptisms, births, marriages, deaths, burials or wills are the preferred standard.
  • Biography Builders make profiles as complete as possible with well-written biographies and sources. They research as much as they can find on a person, writing the information onto the profiles to create as complete a life story for a person. They include categories and links to events and people connected to that profile and citing all those additions.
  • Connectors - connect up loose profiles or branches to our global family WikiTree - you know someone is connected if their profile has the section at the bottom of their profile after Matches and Merges showing their connection to various people.
  • Arborists seek out and merge duplicate profiles.
  • Data Doctors improve profiles on WikiTree by working on suggestions identified in the database.
