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.

Hi. I'm willing to help organize the file cabinets. Are we using Dewey Decimal system? open net architecture? How about a nice friendly tree structure?

I can make some maps for sale. We could get rich selling them and make enough money to get ice cream after. LOL

Hi all,

I would love to join. I have been filling in Category holes as I find them in my own profiles and very much enjoying it. I would love to help on a larger scale. :)

Please add me! I'm specifically interested in Oklahoma topics, especially adding high schools, employers, cities, etc relevant to mine and others' research. However, I'm willing to do whatever is needed to do :)

Like Danielle, I would like to join if only to act as a liaison for Ontario. I'm the Ontario Project's coordinator. With Greg Slade and a few other Ontarians, I've spent the last six months or so trying to bring some order to our province's categories. Please see my answer re the new categorization gadget here: Thanks!

I mainly do birthplaces, civil-war related and cemetery categories. I have a bunch of Netherlands friesland places to add and will need much help doing so.
