This above template is for use only on profiles that are of importance to the project or need to be PPP'd and managed by the project.

It is not for every single person from Florida. The following sticker might be used in that circumstance:

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

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

Ongoing List of Things to Do

  1. Cemeteries in Florida need to be photographed and the categories added to profiles on WikiTree. See the Florida Cemeteries Project
  2. Help develop the Native Americans Project with information about Florida state tribes.
  3. Work on Florida's unconnected and unsourced profiles.
  4. Create new profiles for people of Florida who are documented in a family member's profile, but might not have their own profiles yet. See Needs Profiles Created
  5. Work on Suggestions for profiles from Florida, as reported by the Data Doctors Project.
  6. Add profiles for the men who died in World War I, serving from Florida in the Great War project and for the Roll of Honor project.
