General Items that need work

  • All the Mayflower passengers have {{Mayflower Passenger}} checked done
  • Family members ie. wives of passengers (who weren't passengers), children of passengers, grandchildren of passengers, great grandchildren born before 1700 should have {{Mayflower Family Member}} At the top, below the category list.
  • [[Category:Mayflower Families]] Category:Mayflower_Families|Category:Mayflower_Families needs to have the category removed. Is the template on the profile {{Mayflower Family Member}}?
  • For teams: Do all the children and grandchildren of the passengers have profiles? Do they have the appropriate template.
  • Check all Project profiles for duplicates.
  • Are the sources used "good"
  • Wives - Long term. Add wives of members to project. Really long term 4th generation?
  • Mayflower Compact category Category:Mayflower_Compact_signatories --- Add a sentence to all signers if it's not there already. I think some of them say the 18th and it should be the 11th xxxxx signed the [[:Space:Mayflower Compact|Mayflower Compact]] 11 Nov 1620.<ref>Morton, Nathaniel. ''New England's memorial.'' (Boston: Congregational board of publication, 1855) Originally published 1669.[ p. 26] Note: The original compact is gone. Morton furnished the earliest known list [;view=1up;seq=20 1669 facsimile]</ref>

Getting started

The Goal is to create up to date, accurate, well sourced profiles for the passengers, their wives, children and grandchildren, and the occasional great grandchild born before 1700. I've noticed as I have looked over these profiles that there are many 4th generation profiles that should be included. My thoughts are that as we work on them and give them at least a basic bio, we will add them to the project.

  • False and Faked Mayflower Claims a series of articles in the Mayflower Descendant. Links are to American Ancestors. This might be a good project for someone with access. (write brief synopsis, add to profiles, under common errors.)
    • 20:190+ Ruth Sprague and John Haskell
    • 21:142+ Mercy Simmons w/o Benj. Chase not d/o John and Mercy (Pabodie) Simmons
    • 23:75+ Brewster, Brown, Carr, Cooke, Fuller, Goodman-Dunham, Gray, Hopkins, Rogers, Tilley-Howland, White,
    • 34:14+ Bradford-Mercy Barnes, Brewster-Elisha Sylvester, Cooke-Hannah,
  • Vol 2. 114 Mayflower Descendant. "Mayflower Genealogies" Really brief synopsis

Profile Checklist

Use the check list to evaluate each profile. As tasks are completed, mark them done. When the whole list is complete add '''=== Mayflower Project Checklist Completed ===''' after Sources before Acknowledgements.

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?

Frequently Asked Questions FAQ

  • Should I create profiles for children? If the children normally fall into the project, create them. Add {{Mayflower Family Member}}. Add the Project Account as a manager. Add the category and the Checklist etc. If they do not fall in the category you don't need to create them but certainly can.
  • Spouses Profiles? Adding information to spouses (not in the project) is good but not necessary.
  • Acknowledgements Section. Wikitree Guidelines says we don't need them. Leave or remove doesn't matter. If you leave them they should be short, names only.
