This Project does not currently include South Africa. Please see the South Africa Project for this country.
The goals of this project are:
- To collect in one place information and resources to assist in building and documenting African Genealogies.
- To bring together WikiTreers interested in connecting African families to the Global Family Tree.
- To make every African profile the best it can be.
Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.
- Create Space Pages for each country and link them to this project page. See Mauritius Space Page as an example. Use the +Add "New Project" choice to create the page. Each Page should be titled "<Insert Country Name> Project"
- Begin gathering resources for each country
- Create profiles for African notables for all countries and add them to a space page for notables of that country.
