The purpose of this page is to gather some example profiles of Early Scandinavia Project. Since very many of these profiles have "sources" written many hundred years later than the person lived and/or the event took place, the different sources mentioning the person don't always agree with each other.

Therefore a suggestion is to create sub-headers of the Biography header like;

Parents and family
Spouse(s) and children
Death and burial

and present the different information "according to: xxx" and "according to yyy;" under the correct header.

(The biography heading should alway have two == on either side of the word Biography, a sub-section should have three ===)

Example profiles:

  • Anund "Bröt-Anund" (Land clearer) Ingvarsson is an example of a profile of a person whose existence is not proven (and historians are still debating). In this case his father is not certain but since the alternate father is his grandfather (which is still the same family), we are for the time being leaving him connected to his "father". An alternative would be to disconnect him from the father and only link to both suggested fathers profiles in the biography.

    This profile also show example how a multilingual profile can be made, it has Headings in two languages, Swedish and English.
  • Dag den mäktige (Unknown LNAB) This is an example of a profile to be considered belonging in the legends only. He is supposedly, if he ever existed, to have lived before the year 500 according to sagas written abt 700 years later.

Since most of the Scandinavian countries did not exist "as a country" in this time period Scandinavia can be used in the location field with modern-day country in parentheses after, example: Scandinavia (Sweden).

If the profile is not for a historically proven person, please add the template {{Uncertain Existence|Early Scandinavia}} to the profile.

Since most of these profiles have been imported in WikiTree's early days and most managers have not contributed to add any relevant info at all to the biographies, it is OK to remove the "Acknowledgement" heading. However, please keep the gedcom file name at the end of the profile, preferrably separated from sources with a horisontal line.
