Project Goals

Our end objectives are to improve the presence of French profiles on WikiTree and make WikiTree an attractive place for visitors who are French or have French ancestry. We have two main areas of work:

  1. General French profiling - create and improve profiles representing French people and people of French origin, including French notables.
  2. Migrant ancestors - the more demanding task of researching, validating, improving the profiles of ancestors of French people who migrated to the New World before the 19th century.



French Roots Project Box

When a profile is eligible to be managed by the project, the French Roots Project template should be added. Add

{{French Roots Project}}

at the top of the profile, just below Categories and above the == Biography == heading:

... ... ... has French origins.
Join: French Roots Project
Discuss: french_roots

For the French version, use:

{{French Roots Project|lang=fr}}

... ... ... a des origines fran├žaises.
Join: French Roots Project
Discuss: french_roots

Note that all profiles with the French Roots project template should be managed by the project. Previous managers of the profile will not be removed.

French Roots Sticker

If you wish to recognize the French ancestry on a profile which is not to be managed by the project, use the French Roots Sticker. Add

... ... ... has French origins.
