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

  1. Add Arkansas-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. If you have any Arkansas state resources that you are willing to do lookups, please add them to the Resources Page.
  2. If you live in Arkansas, please consider adding your name to the Arkansas Research Assistance page.

Ongoing List of Things to Do

  1. Cemeteries in Arkansas need to be photographed and the categories added to profiles on WikiTree. See the Arkansas Cemeteries Project
  2. Add profiles for those who obtained land grants and homesteaded in Arkansas. See the Homesteaders Project
  3. Help develop the Native Americans Project with information about Arkansas state tribes.
