Here is the page with all Worldwide disasters:
If you are interested in working on a specific new disaster.., please study the current disasters.. Then send another message to me.
1)Have you worked on Space pages before?
2)The disasters have a format (most do).
3) You will need to research the Northeast Blackout, 2003 4) lots of sources, eventually look for images (some images are not free to use on WikiTree.
I will put the page up, if you are not familiar with the ins and outs. i just need to know you are seriously wanting to put in a couple of weeks..
Study the ones listed and then let me know..

Looks like you are adding a category for Canadian farmers to profiles of ancestors who never left England. There is an English farmers category which would seem the more appropriate choice! Would you please correct these profiles?

Below is information on using sources from paid subscription genealogy websites.
Links to sources on paid subscription sites such as Ancestry, FindMyPast, and MyHeritage can be frustrating for WikiTree members and visitors without access to these sites. We recommend searching for a freely available copy of the source document on sites such as FamilySearch, USGenWeb, Archive.org, and HathiTrust. If the source record is only available to paid subscribers, when providing the URL please also extract as much information as possible, such as relevant names, dates, and the source of the original data. Providing the source as an inline reference within the biography also helps to clarify which biographical facts are supported by the source citation.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
Thank you, David ~ WikiTree Mentor

How are you? I'm David a WikiTree Mentor. Thanks for adding profiles to WikiTree. There are reasons behind the eighth point in our Honor Code: "We cite sources. Without sources we can't objectively resolve conflicting information." A source provides a way to find out more about the person. Showing sources reduces confusion and duplicates.
Here is what our Sources help page says. It has lots of ideas: http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Sources
The Sources Style Guide shows how to enter sources in the biography.
This page describes sources and how to enter sources and is my favorite. Jillaine's Dream Source Help Page
Please make sure to look for duplicates on WikiTree before adding a profile. Having dates and locations attached to every person assists in our mission as well - if you have pre-1700's ancestors to add please read our Pre-1700 profiles info.
And I'm here to help too, just ask!
