I noticed that many of your profiles have only one source, a book retrieved from Archive. While this is a good starter source, it is a derivative source. What you will need to do is to look for primary sources, many of which can be found on Family Search (familysearch.org) this is a free site (though you will have to register). One you find a source for the data you have entered, you can copy and paste the citation from FS to the profile.
To get an understanding of WikiTree's standards for sources, here is a link to our help page on sourcing: Help with sources.
Hope this helps!
You've been a member for a while so I thought I would check in to see how it's going. Have the How-Tos been helpful or left you with questions? Most of us have questions after all that information!
I want to help! Click my name, send me a private message or ask in the comment section of my page. Sometimes links don't work in emails. If that's happened to you, check the public comments on your profile. The links will work from there.

PS To find reliable sources for your profiles, go to the Family Tree & Tools tab; select Genealogy Research and scroll down near the bottom of that list and select Research with RootsSearch. There are over 20 websites to access from there.
