Any WikiTree profile or page can be categorized. Categories help you organize your own family history, help connect genealogists whose family histories intersect, and help historians who are researching specific subjects.
Categorizing a profile is as simple as including a tag such as [[Category:World War II Veterans]] inside the bio/text section. See Using Categories for simple instructions.
The categorization system is still being developed. If this topic interests you, please help us by joining our new Categorization Project.
Here is a list of the top-level categories with examples of subcategories. To see all the subcategories click on the top-level category.
These aren't really separate from the categories for person profiles. Categories for people are often subcategorized or cross-categorized in the following. For example, British Prime Ministers goes under British Political History as well as Politicians.
For the complete alphabetical list (which will be overwhelming) see Special:Categories.
