Notables

The Geni Master Profile

  • See Naming Conventions for notes on historical periods that may be within scope but not covered below.

Names

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. or Dr. preceding.

For example

FN Reuben MN (blank) LN Coffin MN (blank) Display name is Captain Reuben Coffin


Places

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

Charleston, South Carolina

Overview tab

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

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 ....

Works Cited

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

- Instant citation makers on line:
