Project: US Presidents

Categories: US Presidents Project

Welcome to the US Presidents WikiTree Project! This project exists to bring together WikiTreers interested in improving the profiles of presidents of the United States.

As an inclusive matter, profiles for Jefferson Davis (President of the Confederated States of America), as well as those 8 men who served as President under the Articles of Confederation (preceding the Constitutional form of National Government), are also part of this project's focus.

This is an ideal place for WikiTree contributors to help with a Special Project while exploring the processes of group management for profiles. At the same time it gives ample opportunity for learning new and improving old wiki techniques for helping elsewhere on the tree.

Project Box

The project box for the presidents is Template:US President. To use it on a profile, just put the following text on the profile, above the biography:

{{US President}}

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