Profile Management

We do not want to be overwhelmed by managing a huge number of profiles. General guidelines on when profile management should be considered are on the Medieval Project main page.

These are the arrangements so far agreed where a profile needs Project management. They also apply to profiles inherited from the EuroAristo Project, but these can be handled over a period of time. Please note that the EuroAristo Project is now confined to post-1500 profiles.

These arrangements may need fine-tuning in the light of experience.

English profiles

The England Project should be asked if it wants to manage the profile if it is of someone prominent, unless it is of the pre-Norman period: the England Project is not extending that far back in time.

The England Project has started the process of taking over English profiles that were managed by the British Aristo Project: it may be some time before this process is complete.

England Project liaison: Jo Fitz-Henry

French profiles

The general approach is:

  • The France Project will manage the profile if it is post-1200, unless the person is relatively obscure AND there are major controversies over relationships etc which call for specialised medieval expertise.
  • The Medieval Project will manage the profile if it is pre-1200.

France Project liaison: Isabelle Rassinot

Irish profiles

Rich Devlin, one of the leaders of the Medieval Project's Ireland team (co-sponsored with the Irish Roots Project), is also a leader of the Ireland Project and should be asked to decide which Project should manage the profile.

Scottish profiles

Just as the Scotland Project will normally take the lead on Scottish medieval profiles, it will also normally manage Scottish medieval profiles if Project management is needed.

Scotland Project liaisons: Jen Hutton and Mark Sutherland-Fisher

Welsh profiles

The Wales Project should be asked if it wishes to manage the profile.

Wales Project liaison: Steve Bartlett
