Project: Titanic

Categories: Titanic Project | This Day In History April 15


Welcome to the Titanic Project!

The Titanic Project covers the passengers and crew of the RMS Titanic, which sank in the Atlantic Ocean on 15 April 1912, on its maiden voyage.

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 titanic.

Goals

Any improvements you can make to the profiles of the Passengers/Crew are welcome, but here are some specific goals we're working towards:

For each person:
    • All duplicates merged into the final profile ID
    • Final ID locked, marking the profile as project protected (must be done by one of the Supervisors)
    • Titanic template included on the page
    • All relevant categories are added
    • Bio is cleaned up, free of any GEDCOM junk, Ancestry trees, etc., and ideally has an actual written bio.
    • Each individual should have a source or reference to their association with the Titanic - i.e. a website or published biography
