Welcome to the Cowboys and Cowgirls Project.??


This project is for those who have WikiTree profiles of cowboys, cowgirls, ranch hands, and cattle/horse herders and their families. This is also a good place for profiles of people who lived in a cow town. These individuals led unique lives.



A project coordinator is needed to lead this project.

If you're interested in participating in this project, please do the following
1.Add the line [[Category:Westward Ho Project Members]] to the text area of your profile page. This will add you to the list of participants on the Category page.
2.Add cowboys_and_ cowgirls to your list of followed tags. That way you'll see all our discussions in your G2G Feed.
3.Send a private message to Project Coordinator T Stanton letting him know your particular areas of interest of expertise.
4.Answer our G2G joining post with your interests and to receive a badge.


Any improvements you can make to the profiles of Cowboys and Cowgirls are welcome, but here are some specific goals we're working towards:

  • For each person:
    • All duplicates merged into the final lowest profile ID number.
    • Sticker or Project Box included on the page as may be appropriate
    • All relevant categories are added
    • Parents are correct and documented
    • Biography is cleaned up, free of any GEDCOM junk, Ancestry trees, etc., and ideally has an actual written biography.


Add this Project Box template to the top of the biography for your Cowboys and Cowgirls profiles only where the profile has the project as a co-profile manager and the profile is project protected.
{{Westward Ho|sub-project=Cowboys and Cowgirls}}
and the project box will appear on the profile
