This template is for use only on profiles that are of importance to the project or need to be PPP'd and managed by the project. It is not for every single person from Alaska. A sticker might be used in that circumstance.

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 Alaska. To meet these goals:

  1. Add Alaska-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. Contact Paula to request PPP status for those profiles that meet the criteria for project protection. This will protect them from an incorrect merge.
  6. Make sure profiles of all family members are correct and documented.
  7. Profiles need to be linked to the greater WikiTree. Try to find the connection.

List of Things To Do

  1. Need space pages created and developed for Alaska boroughs and linked to this page. Would you like to lead a boroughs project?
  2. If you have any Alaska state resources that you are willing to do lookups, please add them to the Resources Page.
  3. If you live in Alaska, please consider adding your name to the Alaska Research Assistance page.

Ongoing List of Things to Do

  1. Cemeteries in Alaska need to be photographed and the categories added to profiles on WikiTree. See the Alaska Cemeteries Project
  2. Add profiles for those who obtained land grants and homesteaded in Alaska. See the Homesteaders Project
  3. Help develop the Native Americans Project with information about Alaska state tribes.
  4. Work on Alaska's unconnected and unsourced profiles.
  5. Errors on profiles from Alaska, as reported by the Database Errors Project.
