How To: Add Sourced Facts to Profiles

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."

Select the document you would like to site from the list to the left.


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. The note will be added for every fact selected.

Note: If you would like to add different notes for each citation, you will need to do them one at a time. Check the fact supported, add your note specific to that fact and 'Save.' Follow these steps for each citation.


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.
