Profile Improvers

The goal of the Wales Project is to make Welsh profiles the best that they can be. This team is on the front line of the coordinated effort to achieve this through arboring, sourcing, biobuilding, connecting and data-doctoring. Team members are committed to improving Welsh profiles so that they have accurate birth, marriage and death details, well written biographies, are properly sourced and linked to the right parents, spouse and children.

Gedcom Team

Gedcom Team - works on Gedcom uploads primarily from the early days of Wikitree, to make each Wales profile contained within, as perfect as possible. This will cover all Profile Improvements elements including, but not limited to, connecting, merging of duplicates and untangling troublesome profiles. It is a total Team effort, where collaboration on profiles is encouraged to get the best possible outcome. See the Gedcom Team Page for full details.

Reduce our Unknowns

All data doctors come across profiles where the name is unknown. Help to reduce them by finding the correct last name at birth. See The UNKNOWNS project

You can run a WikiTree+ report to identify orphaned Unknown's for a particular county:

  • Open WikiTree+, then click on the Search heading (third from bottom)
  • Sort your WikiTree+ report by birth date, set page size to 50, in the text box enter (for example):
  • unknown orphan wales
  • the easiest ones to work on will be at the bottom of the report
  • using marriage, census and birth registrations of the children should enable you to identify the correct LNAB
  • adopt the orphaned profile, amend the LNAB, add all the sources that you can, then orphan the profile.

Guidelines for working on the Profile Improvers Teams

Apart from formatting changes, all changes to profiles, including correction of database suggestions, should be based on evidence provided by a relevant primary or acceptable secondary source. Online family trees are not acceptable.[1]

In a situation where an online tree is the only information available to orient to who the person may be, relevant information from the online tree should be added to research notes only with an inline source. This information should not be used to update birth, death or marriage details, or to add to the main part of the biography.
