Goals

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.
