For other profiles that have Delaware ties that you want to highlight, use a Delaware sticker:


The overall goals of the US History Project are to create and develop profiles on WikiTree for those who lived in Delaware and the other states in the union. To meet these goals:

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