Welcome to the France 5 Star list Team

This is part of the Profile Improvement Team of the France Project.

  • Goal: To update high access profiles
  • Who should Join: Anyone who is interested in making our most viewed Profiles the best that they can be
  • How to join: Send your request to Isabelle
  • If there is a 5 star French related Profile not on the list that you would like to work on, contact Greg or Isabelle and they will add it to the list below.


What to do


  • Check that facts are sourced. Try to find sources for ones that aren't
  • If there aren't dates/locations, see if you can find them and add with sources. If you can't find them, or do not find sources to support them, it would be helpful to add notes about where you searched so that others don't have to repeat your efforts.


  • Check if there are any duplicate family members and propose merges when necessary.


  • If there is a biography, make sure it is an originally written narrative, excluding any copyright or licensing violations (for example, not something that was copied and pasted from Wikipedia; see Copying Text)
  • Rearrange the Biography section into a logical order, remove any GEDCOM junk and clean up after any merges. See Help:Biographies
  • Make sure the profile meets our Profile Aesthetics recommendations (see also HTML and Inline CSS).
  • If there's not a biography, try to lay out a basic narrative and/or timeline of the persons life. Getting the key facts in order will help later.

Family Connections

  • Check that family connections (especially parents) are correct and supported by reliable sources. This is particularly important for ancestors of emigrants. If you find a connection that seems doubtful, start a G2G thread about it, or contact Isabelle.


  • See if you can add copyright free photographs, pictures, maps or other visual items.
  • Add categories, project templates, stickers and/or succession boxes if appropriate.
  • When every thing is done and it is a quality profile, add Completed in the notes section or send Isabelle a note.
