Welcome to the Bootleggers & Moonshiners Project!

Mission: This project is to highlight the profiles of Moonshiners who made illegal distilled alcohol and Bootleggers who smuggled it.



  1. Add profiles for bootleggers and moonshiners, 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.

How You Can Help

If you would like to help further the project's goals, please consider working on profiles beyond those of your own family members. There are many websites that feature historical moonshiners and bootleggers where you will find information to support your research interests. There are also books available online. See the Resources list below.


Profiles should be categorized to: Category:Bootleggers_and_Moonshiners
