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 refined. If this topic interests you, please help us by joining our Categorization Project.
If you prefer to browse, below is a list of a top-level categories with examples of subcategories. To see all the subcategories click on the top-level category.
This is just a sample, see Category:Professions for the full list.
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.
