How to Join


For a list of members with the badge, see the badge feed.

Project Leaders: Maggie N, Michael Maranda, Summer Orman

Project Coordinator for Croatian Roots - Emily Kusec-Ashcroft

  1. Ask Michael Maranda to join and for the project badge.
  2. Add SLAVIC_ROOTS and CROATIAN_ROOTS to your G2G tag feed.
  3. Request to join our Google discussion group.

Project Goals

  1. Add 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. Add template to the profiles along with any relevant categories.
  5. Contact (leader name) to request PPP status for those profiles that meet the criteria for project protection. This will protect them from an incorrect merge.
  6. Profiles of family members are correct and documented.
  7. Profiles are linked to the greater WikiTree. Try to find the connection.
  8. Work on sources for unsourced profiles
  9. Work with the Global Cemeteries Project to ensure cemeteries in these countries/areas are photographed and records added to WikiTree.


To-Do List

Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.

  1. Identify profiles and tag them with appropriate categories
  2. Spread the word to others with Croatian heritage or interest in the area
  3. Identify people who can help with documents or direct research
  4. Establish project pages for other categories under the Croatia umbrella

Project Templates

  • Add {{Croatian Roots}} on any Croatian related profiles, regardless if they emigrated or not. The template gives you this:
    Croatian Roots logo
    ... ... ... has Croatian Roots.
    Join: Croatian Roots Project
    Discuss: croatian_roots


    • For those that migrated from Croatia to another country, you can also use the Migrating Ancestor Template: (Canada used as example below).
    {{Migrating Ancestor
    |origin = Croatia
    |destination = Canada
    |origin-flag = European_Flags-41.png
    |destination-flag = Flags-1.png
    Gives you this:
    Flag of Croatia
    ... ... ... migrated from Croatia to Canada.
    Flag of Canada

    • For lists of flags to choose from, go to Category:Flag_Images
    • To add the profile to a specific city/town/area in Croatia, please add it to the proper category ([[:Category:|Croatia see the list here]]) - if it does not exist, please contact Summer O to create it. (These are currently in the process of being created).
    • For a list of all profiles using {{Croatian Roots}} click Croatian Roots.
