What to do


  • Review facts to ensure they are sourced. Try to find sources for ones that aren't.
  • If there are no dates/locations, try to research them and add with sources. If you can't find them, or do not find sources to support them, please add notes about where you searched.
  • We use inline sourcing as the preferred standard.


  • Check for any duplicate family members and propose merges when necessary.


  • If there is a biography, confirm it is an originally written narrative and does not include any copyright or licensing violations (see Copying Text)
  • Place the Biography section into a logical order, remove any GEDCOM junk and clean up after any merges. See Help:Biographies
  • Make sure the profile meets our Profile Aesthetics recommendations (see also HTML and Inline CSS).
  • If there's no biography, try to lay out a simple narrative and/or timeline of the persons life.

Family Connections

  • Review and ensure that family connections (especially parents) are correct and supported by sources. This is particularly important for pre-1500 profiles. If you find a connection that seems doubtful, start a G2G thread about it.


  • A check should be done to ensure there are no Suggestions for the profile you are working on.
  • If the number of profile managers is more than 3 (Scotland Project, plus 2 other active profile managers) a discussion about reducing this number should be initiated within the team.
  • See if you can add copyright free photographs, pictures, maps or other visual items.
  • Add categories, project templates, stickers and/or succession boxes if appropriate.
  • When every thing is done and it is a quality profile, add Completed in the notes section below.

Hi Team

I've updated the page with Gillian's suggestions: See Sourcing and Other sections for the changes.

I'll update the table today with our priority profiles at the top in # of views order. The remaining profiles will be sorted by number of views as well.
