Profile Checklist

This is a checklist to help you determine if the profile that you are working on is "complete." No profile is ever 100% done, but it is nice to know that the basic foundation of a great profile is laid.

Once you have completed a profile, go to the G2G post (link) and put the Wiki-ID under your teams name before starting the next one. The team that gets the most complete profiles of the week will earn the right to have its members add a sticker to their profile. The member that gets the most after four weeks gets a special winner sticker, and can pick a digital surname and style to be made for them (see examples here).


The biography has been arranged in a logical order, with any gedcom "clutter" tidied. (~~~~)
Each fact on the profile has at least one source that supports it. Add sources using the Sources Style Guide.(~~~~)
A == Research Notes == section has been created to document discrepancies and enhance collaboration.(~~~~)
All appropriate categories have been added.(~~~~)
All date fields are filled in. Use an estimated date ({{Estimated Date}}) if needed, or use the before or after statuses.(~~~~)
All location fields are filled in. Add the country if that is the only thing known, or an estimate based on records, and set the appropriate status. (~~~~)
A narrative has been expanded, or written, that details something personal about the ancestor (their family size, their occupation, etc).(~~~~)
Their children are listed within the narrative; each having at least one supporting source.(~~~~)
The profile is connected to the Global Tree.(~~~~)
The profile has been checked for duplicates(~~~~)
(Optional) Look at the images tab for photographs to insert into the biography. If there are none, look for copyright-free images of the area(s) they lived in.(~~~~)
