Contributions welcome.


For consistency, please make sure the name fields of the Master Profiles include first name, middle name, last name, maiden name if known, otherwise blank, suffix for Sr., Jr., etc. In the display name field only add titles such as Gov. , Sir or Dr. preceding.

For the Lord Mayor of London, note that in the display name field only.

For example:

  *FN William MN (blank) LN Pickett Suffix Esq. MN (blank)
   *Display name: Sir Alderman William Pickett, Esq. "Lord Mayor of London"



The United States did not exist until 1789 and the United Kingdom was formed in 1707. Please be careful about using autocomplete. It is better to use the "place" field and type out the place name. Use place names such as England and South Carolina and spell out the country name with historical accuracy.

For example

Colonial America: Charleston, South Carolina

Overview tab

It makes it easier to read a profile if the "about me" information is filled out in this fashion:

Media tab

- Future releases of the Geni Project module will create a dynamic library of downloadable media for profiles associated with the Project.

-- The media tab of the MP should be used for documentation files. Websites, biographies, census reports, image files -- the richer we make the profile, the more historically and genealogically accurate and meaningful it will be.

Sources tab

-- Adding a source validates the MP, and creates a "timeline" for each life represented by a profile. The more information we add, the more detailed and accurate.

-- Original source data includes: birth certificates, census reports, immigration records, ship rosters, obituaries, marriage licenses ....

- Citation data (MLA format is good) should be noted for each source. If someone else can't replicate research, it's not acceptable.
