Where are you trying to enter data? The best way to source a profile is uploading documents from valid secondary sources, such as the reference data in Wikipdia articles. For nobility Burke's Peerage, available through Google Book snippets, is good. Guy Fawkes would be a fun one to work on. There's a great site about the conspiracy - I had Throckmorton cousins who participated.:)

on the project page for the executed by the crown project i was going to add profile under the actions tab.. i would have thought i'd get something like this name does not exist do you wish to create it?
anyway I think guy fawkes is pretty much covered but your right there is allways more to discover...

You're already thinking well about working with documents (and images) stored in a project. You can then tag them to the relevant profiles as sourced facts.

It's fun though to work on historical profiles too. You can do both.:)
