The Curators can set a profile in the Big Tree as Master Profile for a person.

It should then contain information according to a Master Profile Format. The main reason is to avoid mix-ups, ensure quality, and to make the "true" relations easily accessible from tree view: top of About.

The About/Overview field should contain in this order:

  • Full name also with aliases and other main languages if appropriate, function, work or title. Also "Disambiguation" - warnings of usual mix-ups where necessary.
  • Names of parents, spouses and children in a neat list
  • LINKS (include headline) to official sources like
    • Foundation of Medieval Genealogy
    • Wikipedia
    • Official websites of royal houses in Europe
    • No links to private webpages where people have uploaded their trees (like Rootsweb etc)
  • Actual (copied) information and citations from MedLands, Wikipedia and good, approved Sources (which will be different for different areas) with references - include headline to indicate source etc
  • Bibliography and Sources where appropriate
  • Additional links
