Welcome to France Project Ancestors Cleanup Team
The French Ancestors Cleanup team is part of the France Project.
Team Leader Isabelle Martin
- Provide correct, sourced and as complete as possible ancestries for migrating ancestors.
- Document and disconnect spurious ancestors.
To join this team, it is necessary to:
- Identify profiles for deep ancestors needing work
- Find sources for ancestors.
- Fix profile Suggestions
- Cleanup and rewrite biographies.
- Merge duplicates
- Add profiles for family members and ancestors not yet on WikiTree
- Ancestors with uncertain or absent sources marked Uncertain
- Disproven ancestors disconnected, catalogued and categorized
- After disconnecting incorrect parents from an ancestor, please request PPP status for the profile in order to prevent the error from being repeated.

Lines lacking sources
The lines below are supposed correct but need sources and clean-up to look good:
- Catherine de Baillon's lineage clean-up - See special free-space page and https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/484463
- Jean Pierre Bondurant: Typically unsourced Huguenot profile claiming to be 28th great-grandson of Charlemagne. Sources are available for most of the mother's lineage, leading to some hope that there is a chance to clean this up.
- Jacques Guéret dit Dumont: Mainly poorly sourced ancestors leading to Pétronille de Montfort as a "gateway". This is apparently based on Francogene and a post at https://soc.genealogy.medieval.narkive.com/ (https://soc.genealogy.medieval.narkive.com/EYny1ATb/de-meherenc-de-montmirel-royal-gateway-new). Other source: Alain Contant "De Dumont à Bouchard de Méhérenc" MSGCF (Mémoires de la Société Généalogique Canadienne Française) vol. 52 no 2. p. 91-93. Fichier Origine covers up to Françoise Méhérenc's parents.
- Charlotte de Coppequesne. Many misnamed, unsourced profiles and duplicates in her ancestry.
- Julien Charles Sévigny Fichier Origine claims that Renaud de Sévigne is his grandfather but important information about his father is missing. FrancoGene does not accept the lineage. Father's profile is unsourced on WikiTree.
- Catherine de Belleau: Tested maternal royal gateway claim and found the lineage problematic. See Jean de Goussencourt for research note. Also left note on paternal grandfather's profile about possible family connections.
