Welcome to the team page of the England Data Doctors

Data Doctors improve profiles on WikiTree by correcting errors (suggestions) identified in the data.
The England Project Data Doctors are:

Janet Wild (Team Leader) | Peter Cameron | Susan DeFoe | Teresa Downey | John Elkin | Joe Farler | Hiliary Gadsby | Carol Keeling | Emma McBeath | Lynden Raber Castle Rodriguez | Joan Whitaker | David Edwards | Karen Butler | Paul Shepard| Lesley Leamon | Robert Stiles | Sandie Mustchin |

How Can You Help

Any help you can give to improve our profiles by reducing suggestions (errors) is appreciated, even if its only fixing one or two each week. Please let us know what you are working on and give us your suggestions about how we can reduce the errors on our English profiles

Doing a little bit more

As a Data Doctor for the England Project you might want to do more. There are some ideas below.

Challenges

If you enjoy challenges, then join the weekly Data Doctors Challenge. Work on the England suggestions. Main list ::https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/716298/challenge-of-the-week-improve-orphaned-profiles
Quality over quantity - Can we when possible leave a message on the profile amended to draw their attention to it, try to sent the link to their suggestion list and for some a reminder or introduction to the How To pages. While this slows the rate of clearance it is using the opportunity to teach others and potentially reducing the number of suggestions both old and new.

Maintain for England

Help to reduce the number of profiles in the England Maintenance Categories, especially the Serious Data Problems
Having said that please mark profiles Unsourced|County if they have no official records linked to the data. Just a name or website or a broad statement are not sources. While we wish to reduce suggestions we also wish to build the quality and look of profiles through sourcing and biography building.
Links to the other England teams are give at the top of the page please visit and review what our colleagues are busy doing. Thanks

County Data Doctor

Join your counties team. Work on reducing the suggestions (errors) for your county. Please let us know what you are doing.

Janet, I love your comment against error 794 in the table. Took me ages to clear all of the errors, I think some new parameters were introduced, so they weren't all entered incorrectly in one week. All sorted now though.

I like seeing the numbers reducing in the table, it gives us an incentive to keep going.
