Is there any one of the 129 Swiss genealogists young and ambitious enough to volunteer to lead a Switzerland Project?

Actually, what the Swiss project needs is someone older (probably retired) to take it on. I had started the project, but I simply couldn’t continue to solicit volunteers for each of the Canton pages because I work full time and have a second job on the side. It’s not really a lot of work. It’s a matter of finding volunteers who will take on the individual Canton pages. Once a page is written it takes almost no regular work to maintain the page. Other than adding the occasional link to resources, it’s not much work at all. I still maintain a couple pages (Basel and Appenzell) and I really haven’t done anything in months.

To anyone who feels daunted by taking on the entire project, please take on a Canton page. In a short period of time and with little effort you can make a significant contribution.

I would try to take on Canton Valais a.k.a. Wallis. Is there an existing subpage for the Canton?

There is a Canton page already set up for Valais. On the Switzerland Project page ( scroll down near the bottom and you'll find all the categories for the separate Canton pages. Canton Valais is all yours. Go ahead and start writing. Feel free to look at other Canton pages for ideas on how to format Canton Valais, but use your own judgement and ideas to make it personal and useful. Don't forget to add yourself as the page host.

Thank you for taking on the responsibility for a Canton Page.

Hi Bruce
I'm young and thus have to work ;-). But I'm currently proofreading the translated German help pages, so hopefully, soon other swiss and german genealogists will join wikitree.
