French Roots project now official and accepting volunteers

+28 votes

The French Roots project is now official and ready to co-ordinate the efforts of Wikitree-ers with French ancestors (those who are not already covered by the existing Huguenot, Quebecois and Acadian projects), or who want to help improve the profiles of French people.

Want to be part of the project?

1. Be informed : start by reading the Project Page and follow the french_roots tag.

2. Contribute: there are lots of ways you can get involved (check the Project Page): correct errors, find sources (France has lots of great records available), categorize, improve profiles for French notables... Or participate in one of the sub-projects (Catherine de Baillon, French Notables, Presidents of France or the new Departments project).

If you are ready to help, please post an answer to this question to tell us what you'd like to do, and you'll receive one of our shiny new badges.

Yay for us ;)
Hey! Want a badge?
Double yay for us :-)
Thank you .. Great work ..
Ooh, yes please.
I would love a badge.
Congratulations, Isabelle, on getting the project live! I look forward to seeing the great work of you and your project members.
congratulations... although I do not have ancestors that are French, I applaud your accomplishment at getting this project up and running.
I would like to join a group and help specifically with anything having to do with the Alsace Lorraine area of France. That said I will help leadership with anything else that needs to be done. I am a rookie at this but willing to learn.

My great grandfather came from Alsace Lorraine to the USA in 1871. I have his name and self report birth day but nothing else about his family. his name was Michael Gerber.

Thank you.  I see that you've already found our discussion group, great!  Please note that the French Roots project deals with French ancestors, but  not those already covered by the Quebecois and Acadians projects. You might want to check those as well.
