Goals

The overall goals of the US History Project are to create and develop profiles on WikiTree for those who lived in the state of Alabama. To meet these goals:

  1. Add Alabama-related profiles, checking for existing profiles to avoid duplication. If any duplicate profiles exist, request merges, starting with the oldest generation.
  2. If profiles were loaded by GEDCOM, use WikiTree Styles and Standards to clean up residue and broken links.
  3. Search out original rather than derivative documentation and add sources.
  4. Write comprehensive, well-sourced biographies.
  5. Make sure profiles of all family members are correct and documented.
  6. Profiles need to be linked to the greater WikiTree. Try to find the connection.

List of Things to Do

  1. Alabama needs space pages created and developed for Alabama counties and linked to this page. Would you like to lead a county project?
  2. If you have any Alabama state resources and you are willing to do lookups, please add them to the Alabama Resources Page.
  3. If you live in Alabama, please consider adding Catalog: Alabama Research Assistance to your Wikitree profile page.

Ongoing List of Things to Do

  1. Add town-level categories to profiles from Alabama.
  2. Locate Alabama Notables that need to be added or improved (and work with the Notables project to get that done.)
  3. Cemeteries in Alabama need to be photographed and the categories added to profiles on WikiTree. See the Alabama Cemeteries Project
  4. Work on Alabama's unconnected and unsourced profiles.
  5. Create new profiles for people of Alabama who are documented in a family member's profile, but might not have their own profiles yet. See Needs Profiles Created
  6. Work on Suggestions for profiles from Alabama, as reported by the Data Doctors Project.
  7. Add profiles for the men who died in World War I, serving from Alabama in the Great War project and for the Roll of Honor project.
