Goals

The Colorado Project aims to create and develop profiles and other resources on WikiTree about people who lived in the Colorado, before or after statehood. To meet these goals:

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

Ongoing List of Things to Do

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