Project: Cowboys and Cowgirls

Categories: Cowboys and Cowgirls Project

Cowboys and Cowgirls is a Sub-Project of the Westward Ho Project

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:Cowboys and Cowgirls Project]] 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.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.
    • Final ID locked, marking the profile as project protected (must be done by one of the Leaders)
    • Template included on the page
    • 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 template to the top of the biography for your Cowboys and Cowgirls profiles.
