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 Arizona. A sticker might be used in that circumstance.


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

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

Ongoing List of Things to Do

  1. Cemeteries in Arizona need to be photographed and the categories added to profiles on WikiTree. See the Arizona Cemeteries Project
  2. Add profiles for those who obtained land grants and homesteaded in Arizona. See the Homesteaders Project
  3. Help develop the Native Americans Project with information about Arizona state tribes.
  4. Work on Arizona's unconnected and unsourced profiles.
  5. Add profiles for the men who died in World War I, serving from Arizona for the Arizona in the Great War project and for the Roll of Honor project.
  6. Errors on profiles from Arizona, as reported by the Database Errors Project.
