  • to ensure "gateway" profiles to royal ancestors are as well sourced as we can do


  • use the book "The royal lineage of our noble and gentle families" as a cited source for the lines covered


  • add profiles of the profiles noted to the project
  • attach the document "Lineage of Curwen, of Workington", or "Descent ... from The Blood Royal of England" to the appropriate profiles, and tick off their names (cite in the "sources" tab)
  • add the citation text (below) to all the profiles
  • clean the profile & tree, resolving data and tree conflicts
  • find the pedigree & step thru it to the royal ancestor, requesting MP's as needed
