So, now that you've made your documents useful, you can add facts and sources to your profiles. First, go to the profile you'd like to work on. Go to the Sources tab, and then click on "Add Source."

Pick the document you'd like to cite, and then click "Continue."

From there, you can add the citations for the relevant facts of the profile in question. Make sure to add clear notes to avoid confusion when others work with your public profiles.

Click "Save," and you're done. It's that simple. Sourcing your profiles makes the Geni experience better for everyone, and it helps avoid mistaken merges. When you source your content, you'll be preventing headaches in the long run. Are there any topics you'd like covered on the How To section of the Geni Blog?
