Are you interested in category use on WikiTree? Join the Categorization Project! [closed]

+22 votes

The Categorization Project on WikiTree is the place where discussion happens to help develop categories for use across the site. Because so many people use them, it is important that structure of categories is discussed before major implementation and the Categorization Project helps facilitate that, as well as set up new categories, fix erroneous categories, and apply them. If you would like to join us, post an "answer" below and we'll get you a badge.

I'm happy to join. My specific interest is the rationalisation of categories in England and its counties.

Hi I would like to join. I was confused initially about categorization but am getting up to speed and using it eg in relation to Scottish Clans for my ancestors.

I would like to join the categorisation project. I need to understand it better myself and in so doing, I’ll be able to help others and keep my area of the site spick and span.

I am English and so feel I must start with that.


Best wishes, Stella Jones

I have done a lot of Categorization and am very familiar with wiki markup.  I find Categorization extremely useful.

You can sign me up. I spend a lot of time categorizing with the projects I've got going so I might as well join the categorization project, too.  :D  Thanks for considering me.

Hi! I'd like to join the project. I'm working on categorizing towns and shtetls in pre-WWI Russia (Poland, Lithuania, Belarus, Ukraine). It would be good to make sure I'm doing it right. Thanks!

I have been working on maintaining county categories for England and Scotland and will be adding the French Roots Project to the mix.  I have become addicted to using categories and would love to help clean them up as needed as well.  Would love to join the project.  Thanks!

Emma, you will be a great asset!
Thanks Natalie, is there anything in particular that needs attention right now? The only categories I don't mess with are war/military since this isn't my area of knowledge.
I've been looking over some things on the last few weeks. Plenty to do, but some things need discussion before changes are made. .There are, for now, two mini-tasks in the table on the project page.
Love your work Emma!

I would like to join. Special interests include Star Trek, Astronauts and "Finding Your Roots".
answered by Gil Davis G2G5 (5.6k points)

I'm not sure I did this right the first time because I don't seem to have a badge yet. I have been adding categories for Astronauts, Medals and some cemeteries in Georgia.

Hi Natalie,

I'd love to join if possible as there are some things I'd love to work on and would like to make sure I'm singing from the same song sheet.

Hi, could I join please?  I've found I enjoy making categories (and helping people who have difficulty doing it) and I think it would help me to have access to this group's expertise.
