Profiles can have the {{Unsourced|Gloucestershire}} profile replaced with the {{Uncertain Existence|Gloucestershire}} one where:-

  1. The profile has birth, death or other life events prior to 1900;
  2. the profile has been marked as unsourced for over a year;
  3. the profile is documented in the Research Notes section with unsuccessful search for sources in:-
  • FamilySearch;
  • the published indices of the General Register Office (for profiles with births or deaths after 1837)

For pre-1700 profiles unsuccessful research should also be documented in:-

  • the Visitations of Gloucester;
  • the National Archives Discovery catalogue; and
  • the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography.

As well as changing the template, the process should be documented in the Research Notes by adding the following:-
