Project Goals

For all profiles included in the Czech roots project:

  • Include sources documenting each fact present on the profile.
  • Merge duplicate profiles into the appropriate LNAB according to the Czech naming guidelines.
  • Identify and project protect Notable Czech profiles and add the {{Czech Roots}} template.
  • Use correct naming patterns according to the Czech name fields guidelines.
  • Include appropriate location categories. (see: Czech Republic category)
    • This is important. The naming patterns result in large quantities of the same name with similar birth dates. Adding locations doesn't eliminate this problem but helps to more easily differentiate people.
  • Apply the Migrating Ancestor sticker to ancestors who moved from Czechoslovakia, Bohemia or Moravia to another country.
  • Format biographies according to the WikiTree Style Guide.
  • Add Czech Roots Sticker to relevant profiles.
