How to add Olney profiles to the study -

Take a look at the existing sub-categories below (and possible sub-sub-categories) and then put the appropriate code/s at the the top of their biography. These sub-categories have been broken up by specific geographical code.

Three forms of identification of a person's profile are used:


The Country


The State / County / Region


County / Area / City or smaller Geographic Area

and a combination of at least two used to Group the Profile IDs together

For example: If a person was born in Lanarkshire, Scotland and died in New South Wales, Australia the categories would not be the [[Category:Olney Name Study]]

but rather:

1.[[Category:Lanarkshire, Scotland, Olney Name Study]] with the linking categories within the edit box:
a. [[Category:Lanarkshire, Scotland, Name Studies|Corney]]
b. [[Category:Scotland, Olney Name Study]]

then 2.[[Category:Scotland, Olney Name Study]] with the linking categories :

a. [[Category:Scotland, Name Studies|Olney]]
b. [[Category:Olney Name Study]]


3.[[Category:New South Wales, Australia, Olney Name Study]] with the linking categories :
a. [[Category:New South Wales, Australia, Name Studies|Olrney]]
b. [[Category:Australia, Olney Name Study]]

then 4.[[Category:Australia, Olney Name Study]] with the linking categories :

a. [[Category:Australia, Name Studies|Olney]]
b. [[Category:Olney Name Study]]

Before creating a location, do a category search to determine if the category has already been created. See: Category:Regions to locate established categories.

NOTE: If you are Category "Challenged" (as I was, & keep being, hence the reconstruction zone above) , send Graeme Olney a note (be sure to include the profile ID to be linked), and I'll set it up. If the category comes in "RED" that means that location has not been created yet. It is also very important to be consistent with punctuation and spelling and even spacing.

Adding Project Template - INSTRUCTIONS

If you would like, you may add a project template to each profile included in our study. This will help raise awareness of our study & may increase further collaboration. The code is:

{{One Name Study
| name = Olney
| category = State/Province/County, Country, Olney Name Study

Insert the location as specific as possible then follow the category instructions above to link the new category to the upper level categories. This template will place ONE category...if there are others, then you will need to set them up manually using the above instructions...

If you need assistance with this process, please contact Graeme Olney


1. Add the template to a Olney profile ONLY those whose last name at birth was Olney (so no wives who became a Olney by marriage)

2. Add the location of the Olney in the following format: This Province/State, Country, Corney Name Study IF it comes up RED then that location/category hasn't been created...either let ME know or I will watch the "wanted categories" section and will take care of it. NOTE: the commas, punctuation are all important. If you have one letter off, it won't set up correctly...I can fix them as long as the profiles aren't restricted via the privacy setting.

3. If you find any information/websites that pertain to the area/location for Olneys or the location add the links to the respective category page so that others can benefit...that's another reason I wanted to set this project up this way. Not only does it better able folks to find relationships in a location, but it also gives me a parking place for specific resources to benefit everyone else in their research...I'd so often put a resource on a profile but it applied to multiple other people but unless someone had a reason to look at that person's profile it doesn't benefit anyone...this way it's sort of up there.
