Green check.png This page explains a policy, a widely accepted standard that all contributors should normally follow. Changes made to it should reflect consensus.

Please visit the discussion page to add comments or suggestions for further development of the policy.

Always cite sources. Remember a reputable source goes a long way to establishing credibility. Sources are especially critical to genealogical research. Don’t think that no one will look up the source. In a large community there will always be those who verify sources.

Contributors can mark statements that require a citation with the template {{cn}} or {{citation needed}}. Any article that is missing many citations can be flagged with the {{Source}} template.
