I have several questions. One- I have a lot of relatives that are Moravians for example Adam Spach is a Moravian who founded Winston Salem, N.C. and a church there. They came from Bethlehem, PA. Is there a Moravian project and badge that I can join and get a badge for also. Two- I have heard my mother say that her grandmother which is my grandmother who was from Mobile, Alabama being a full blooded Cherokee Indian, I do not know if that is correct or not. But is there a native American project and badge that I can join and get a badge for and is there a project and badge also for Cherokee Indian also that I can join and get a badge for. Lastly I have a lot of relatives that is from Pennsylvania is there a project for Pennsylvania that I can join and a badge that I can get.

There is a difference between Moravians, the inhabitants of Morava, one of the Bohemian Crownlands, now part of the Czech Republic, and Moravians as a religious group. As far as I understand Adam Spach belonged to the latter group and was born in Pfaffenhofen in the Alsace region, now in France. Therefore, the "Czech Roots Project" would not be the appropriate project for him.

As a follow-on to what Helmut said, there is not currently a project for the Moravian Church, but there is a category here: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:Moravian_Church

I have a lot of folks who were part of that church, too. They kept wonderful records! :-)

At the moment, both the Bohemians and the Moravians are part of the Czech Roots project, which became a subproject of the Slavic Roots project.   There is a badge for the Czech Roots project.  I'm not the coordinator of either the Czech or the Slavic Roots project.

Go to the FIND tab, click on PROJECTS, and then go to Slavic Roots and under that listing click on Czech Roots.  Ask the project manager for him to add you to the project.
