If we go forward with this project, it will be a sub-project of German Roots. So if you are interested and don't yet have the German Roots badge, contact Jacky at https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Clark-15765
to get your badge.
In case anyone misses this, I will copy & paste this into a message to everyone who has expressed interest in the project on here. I will also cc to Abby in Projects and Jacky at German Roots. Going forward, I think G2G is an appropriate forum to hash things out, so make sure that you have Palatine_Migration in your G2G tags, so you don't miss anything.
Absolutely nothing set in stone here but...
I think to start the project, we shouldn't be too exclusive. I think a cutoff at the American Revolution makes sense. We will need a template. Don't know how to go about that. And some idea of how to organize categories.
I think that anyone who immigrated from Germany in this time period would qualify for the template. But their descendants should perhaps not have the template, but be placed in a Descendants category. Something similar to the different designations given to the men who fought for the King in the Revolution and their descendants who can all use the letters UE. Sort of the same as the difference between Revolutionary War veterans and the DAR and SAR members.
The more I think about it, I don't think we need to subdivide the project as such. Like we do at the War of 1812 project, people can create space pages for particular areas of interest within the structure of the project. And we can subdivide all we want with categories.
As always, please jump in...
