About This Project:

Scope of Project At the end of this project, the many Roberts, Williams, Richards, Maudes and Margarets will be placed in correct order, with their proper parents, spouses and children. The lives of many of the de Ros line are interesting stories. These stories will be captured on their profiles, with a reference to the story source for further reading.

Overview Why do a single family project? These three profiles are why. Margaret de Ros Baron Thomas de Musgrave, 1st Lord Musgrave Sir Henry le Scrope, Lord Chief Justice

Margaret started this project in my mind. She is my 21st great grandmother. "MY" Margaret married Thomas de Musgrave (of the Musgrove/Musgrave project). Every time I come back to Margaret's profile, someone has merged her with a Margaret who married Sir Henry le Scrope. It is well documented that Sir Henry married a Margaret de Ros. It is not as well-documented that Sir Thomas married a Margaret de Ros. I have not found evidence that the two Margarets are the same. I need to know if they are the same lady.

There are many similar problems in this branch of our big tree. Perhaps there is confusion about one of your own de Ros ancestors.

The Geni Master Profile

See http://wiki.geni.com/index.php/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

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:

(vitals, summary) (parents) (marriages) (children) (weblinks) (biography) (notes) (references) (citations) example profile: Stephen Hopkins, "Mayflower" Passenger 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 ....

Works Cited

For more about sources, please see: http://wiki.geni.com/index.php/Sources''''''' - Citation data (MLA format is good) should be noted for each source. If someone else can't replicate research, it's not acceptable.
