Any improvements you can make to the profiles of the Bremen Project are welcome, but here are some specific goals we're working toward:

For each person:

  • All duplicates merged into the final lowest profile ID number.
  • Final ID locked, marking the profile as project protected (must be done by one of the Leaders), if the profile meets those requirements
  • German Roots template included on the page
  • All relevant categories are added.
  • Biography is cleaned up and ideally has a written biography.
  • Parents and children are linked, if possible

In General:

  • Simplify categories, if possible
