Overview and Extent of Project

Our goal is to make good Master Profiles (MPs) of all of the Signers of the Declaration of Independence. All of the links for the signers listed below are being made into MP's. We want, as well, to eventually connect all related families to these MP's, so we need to work on merging related families too. A few of the related profiles have also been made into MPs. The purpose of making MPs, as stated above, is to make good profiles. There are some problems connected to some of these families. In some cases, it may be necessary to lock an MP so that only curators may approve additional merges to them. This is a work in progress. Not all issues will be resolved immediately.

In order to find related profiles to work on, choose any of the profiles from the list below:

Click on the links to go to a particular MP profile, then look under the drop down menu on the right where it says "contact manager" "view tree" etc.

At the bottom of that menu choose "MORE ACTIONS" then choose "VIEW NEARBY MERGE ISSUES".

A list of merge issues related to that profile will come up for you. Keep this page open in another window. When completing a merge by default you will be taken back to your own merge issues, that is why you'll need to keep the Mayflower related merge issue page open in another window so you can return to it easily after completing each merge.


1). Editing Wiki pages is fairly easy. You can click on the Edit tab located on the top menu of this page. You can see what has already been added to this page. Learn by observation of what has already been done. When adding links, note that there is a bracket at the left side of a url, then there is a space (the space is important), then the name of the link, and then another bracket on the right side. If you have any questions, please ask.

2). The History tab shows who has made edits to this page.
