Project: Mayflower

Categories: Mayflower Project

Welcome to the Mayflower WikiProject!

The Mayflower Project currently covers the passengers of the Mayflower, and their descendants for two generations. In the future, it may be expanded to cover other early European settlers in that area.

In the past, participants contacted each other primarily through the WikiMayflower Google Group. That has been replaced by the Mayflower tag on the G2G forum.

  1. Add mayflower to your list of followed tags. That way you'll see all our discussions in your G2G Feed.
  2. Ask Becky to award you the Mayflower Project Member badge.
  3. Add your name to the list below, along with a note about what you're working on in this project right now.

Our Progress

Beside your name below, please keep track of what you're currently working on for this project. This is both for your own reference, and to aid collaboration amongst the project participants. If you are going to be temporarily inactive in the project (eg. on vacation), please note that here. Thanks!

Current challenges

  • The main activity of this project is currently merging duplicate profiles of the Mayflower passengers and their immediate family members.
  • When a final profile is determined for a Mayflower passenger, the following should be done:
    • Add the Mayflower Passenger template to the profile (see next section).
    • Make the profile project-protected. Any Supervisor can do this.
    • Link to the profile from the correct name on the Mayflower page.

Project Box

The project box for this project is Template:Mayflower Passenger. To use it on a profile, just put the following text on the profile, above the biography:

{{Mayflower Passenger}}

This will display the project box, and will also put the profile in Category:Mayflower Passengers, so you don't need to include the Category line when you're including the project box.

Useful Links
