I'm happy to report that all of the Rogers family profiles have been worked through and updated using data from the Mayflower Society as of 2020.

Goal: Every project profile, descendants of Thomas Rogers, will have an accurate, written biography, with inline citations, using primary sources and reliable secondary sources. Who's in the Project? The passenger, their spouse, their children and grandchildren, other direct descendants born before 1700. (This is sometimes great grandchildren and occasionally great great grandchildren.)

How do I find descendants? Go to the Passenger Profile > Family Tree & Tools Tab > Descendant List.

These pages should be read before working on Mayflower Profiles.

General housekeeping

  • Does the profile belong in the Project?
  • Project box in place {{Mayflower Family Member}} or {{Mayflower Passenger}}
  • Mayflower Project as manager? Other managers are ok also.
  • Duplicates?
  • Are the categories appropriate?

Data section

  • Data Correct? birth date and place, parents, marriage date and place, death date and place. Pay close attention to before, after, estimate, exact. Do they agree with what's in the bio?
    • If no children, check the box. If no more children/siblings, check the box.
    • There is on the marriage page a place to click no spouse.
    • Check the appropriate certainty and confidence buttons.

Biography Section

  • Good Bio?
    • Are there sentences with clear sources for the data points?
    • Does the bio agree with the data points?
    • If a marriage is mentioned in the bio is it also in the Data section?
    • Inline citations? Inline Citations help If still confused ask.
  • Good Sources? There are plenty of primary sources for passengers and children and good secondary sources. Ancestry trees, Millenium file, Yates Pub., Find a grave indexes, Find a Grave without stones are not acceptable.
  • Childrens list (sourced)? Each profile of a person who had children should have a list of those children at the end, (with some identifying fact). One secondary source for the list is fine. Their profiles will have better sourcing.
    • Are the children attached the ones on the list? Do the facts agree?
