According to Leo van de Pas - Genealogics.Org

Pilot Project for a Geni Special Collection

the issue

There is a quality criticism of online family trees in general and of Geni in particular. We can say, after five years of the curating program and the use of Master Profiles, that the quality (accuracy, coherence, sourcing) of Geni is vastly improved and compares favorably with Ancestry & FamilySearch trees; but quality is not good enough, quickly enough, and far reaching enough.

So it's past time to try some additional tools. Let's put the power of collaboration to work improving accuracy.

a proposed solution

There have been "profile - centric" suggestions to designate "quality" Geni profiles, but perhaps it's easiest (technically) to identify Quality Profiles (QPs) through Geni projects. But not a "regular" Geni project: a special one.

Let's call them "Geni Special Collections."

Geni Special Collections would be like the Master Profiles of Projects. The profiles contained would be validated against the source data cited: in this case, Leo van de Pas Genealogics.Org.


  • attach the documents
  • ensure the overview has a citation to the book in the overview, and any other notes to assist
  • clean the profile & tree, resolving data and tree conflicts
  • find the pedigree & step thru it to the royal ancestor, requesting MP's as needed
  • advise in discussion when a line is complete

about the source & author of

Leonardus Franciscus Maria van de Pas was born in 1942, De Bilt, The Netherlands and arrived in Western Australia 1968.


Leo van de Pas (Leonardus Franciscus Maria) was born on 28 October 1942 in De Bilt, the second son and fourth child of Dutch historical and religious author, Willem van de Pas, he worked in various clerical positions before and after serving with the Dutch Army (National Service) in New Guinea in 1962.
In 1968 he migrated to Perth, Western Australia where he became assistant of W.A. author G. M. Glaskin, at the same time working for Ansett Airlines and developing his genealogical interests into international acclamation as one of the largest private collections. Consulted by HRH Princess Michael of Kent for her volume of historical novelli, 'Cupid and the King'. Accidentally, he also provided several corrections to the genealogies in 'The Forgotten Monarchy of Scotland' by the self-styled HRH Prince Michael of Albany.
In 1994, because of health reasons, he retired from Ansett Airlines, a few years before this Airline folded due to mismanagement. Having assisted author G. M. Glaskin for some thirty-two years, the last book published was 'A Many Splendoured Woman: A Memoir of Han Suyin', published in Singapore in 1995. Another book he assisted with was 'Two Women'. Two stories in the one volume, the second being the tape-recorded memories of Glaskin's 90-year-old grandmother. Glaskin, aged seventy-six, died in March 2000 and, in early 2002, Leo moved to Canberra to be closer to his own family.
