Saddle up and help revitalize the Wild Wild West Project, one of the wildest rides on WikiTree!

The Wild Wild West project is for those who have WikiTree profiles or are interested in creating profiles of notable people from the period of US western expansion between 1800-1925. This includes anyone that would be found in Wikipedia, known in popular culture, made significant contributions to the Wild West, or held a position of acknowledged local prominence in the Wild Wild West. These folks are often referred to as legends.

To join, please Answer this post and let us know your particular area of interest be it lawmen, gunslingers, soiled doves, bounty hunters, outlaws, and more. And, yeah, some of these legends fit into several of those categories at the same time.

Then, look here for some other start-up tips.

Hi, I'd like to join. I work mainly with all the old post cemetery burials that were relocated to Ft. McPherson National Cemetery at various times. Currently working on trying to finish up Moses Embree "California Joe" Milner profile and trying to get him connected.  

I'm interested in covering all states starting with Nebraska and going West, as well as the States directly North and South of Nebraska.
