Hi all and welcome to our (join) Project Indonesia G2G ! 

For all of you born in or interested in Indonesia and it's history, we now officially started Project Indonesia  !

The Indonesia Project is focusing on adding, sourcing and improving profiles of persons associated with Indonesia, developing standards for a variety of naming conventions, and creating bilingual profiles and a category structure supporting this work.

Are you interested and would you like to join the project ? Just respond by adding an answer to this G2G, introduce yourself and tell us perhaps what names or are's your interested in or what you're working on and..see the points below to see what you can do already to add yourself and check our project page for all information. We are still working on things so if you have ideas or things you would like to see added here, we really could use some input from you all ! 

  1. For all members working on the Indonesia project/profiles, if you didn't already of course, we need to ask you to first take the Pre-1700 Self-Certification quiz ! And please read this: Wikitree Pre-1700 Profiles 
  2. Add the category link: [[Category:Indonesia_Project]] at the top of your own biography, this way you become visible as a member at the Indonesia Project top level page, and you will get redirected to the Page.
  3. Send a request to join the Indonesia Project's Google Group (link will follow)
  4. Add Indonesia to your G2G tag feed followed tags to keep up with Project discussions and news. Add Indonesia to your G2G tag feed followed tags to keep up with Project discussions and news. See also Communicate
  5. Add your name and area/region or surnames of interest to the Project Indonesia Members page
  6. Check out the To-Do list to find something to help us work on, and add yourself (or ask one of us to) to that task

Hi Bea

I did talk with this gentleman after he self certified as pre 1700.

I found your question in the G2G feed this evening so returned to his profile. I note you have been in touch I presume you will therefore encourage him to join the project.

I have today left a message with the link to the project, I used google translate to convert the message to Indonesian as his english is limited he said.

Regards Janet

Volunteer Coordinator and Data Doctor

Hi Janet, 

In fact Mr Nugroho is already a project member, we need just a few more members before we will have a project members badge. That's why for now we all only have the category added to our profiles  ;)  

Greets and thanks for the help it's appreciated and if you come across members who perhaps are from Indonesia or interested ? We sure could use some help :D 


Could a member of the project please contact the following new volunteer

He has uploaded his GED Com he may or may not need guidance but he is from Indonesia so I have directed him to your project


Janet Greeter, Volunteer Cordinator

Thanks Janet ! I will ask if Susan can welcome him, she is our Language expert :) And will send him the link to the Project. Aah thanks you're the greatest you did so already !

I see Susan has been in touch. Appreciate the follow-up

I was not aware of this project and would like to participate. I am interested in the military personnel who spent their military service in Indonesia.

by Niek Boevé G2G6 Pilot (172k points)

Hi Niek 

Welcome to project Indonesia and yes we started the project in 2017, but still need more members (so we don't have a project badge yet), and I think a sticker probably would be handy as well (since we also still don't have a project account). So we still have some work to do wink

And I was thinking maybe we can start a team for this (you could be the team leader if you like) with it's own sticker or category for the soldiers/military personnel in Indonesia ? Jack has been working on categories for the project so you can ask him if he can create one for it.

If you have more ideas for the project just let us know !

I would like to join project Indonesia. I am interested in civil servants in the Dutch East Indies, both Europeans, Indo-Europeans and Javanese ones

by Nick Terstal G2G1 (1.4k points)
Hi, Nick!  Welcome to the Indonesia Project!  Look at the Project page and under "To join the Project" be sure to click the link on #6 and add your name to the member list!  We are a small project without the resources to figure out a lot of things ahead of time, so your best best is to pick a person to profile and consult with others of us as you develop it!
Ok i think i did it all. I am planing on making profiles for these people, i already made a list on wikipedia Oh and should i write names in the old Dutch way like Reksokoesoemo or the one from 1972 which would be Reksokusumo when the spelling changed? And i already have a few profiles that were eighter born in the Dutch East Indies, do i just at the Category Indonesia to them and they will be shown here. Sorry im pritty new to wikitree and project and that kind of stuff. Thanks
