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.
