Project: Canadian History

Categories: Canadian History Project

Welcome to the Canadian History Project!

The Canadian History Project covers any Canadian historical figures, but we're starting with the Prime Ministers and the Fathers of Confederation.

Group members can take primary responsibility for a specific person, and work on merging duplicates, cleaning up profiles, adding sources, and removing incorrect information. If there isn't a particular person that interests you, you can contribute to any of these tasks on any profiles, especially those that have no group manager.

Conversations related to this project happen on G2G using the tag canadian_history.

Please join our Google+ group: WikiTree Canadian History Project!

Participants

The leader of this project is Erin Breen. For a full list of participants, see the badge report.

If you would like to be involved in the Canadian History project, please do the following:

  1. Add canadian_history to your list of followed tags. That way you'll see all of our discussions in your G2G Feed.
  2. Ask Erin to award you the Canadian History Project badge.

Project Box

The project box for the Prime Ministers is Template:Prime Minister of Canada. To use this project box on a profile, simply put the following line in the profile, above the biography:

{{Prime Minister of Canada}}

In addition to displaying the project box, this will also put the profile in Category:Canadian Prime Ministers, so you don't need to include the category line in the profiles.
