Project: Global Community Outreach
Welcome to WikiTree's Global Community Outreach Project!
Our mandate is to recognize cultural differences and integrate them into the existing structure of WikiTree, and to encourage members to share information relevant to their cultural heritage and background. We will discuss strategies for reaching out to genealogists around the world, and ways for volunteers outside the United States to become more active in our global community.
If you are interested in WikiTree's efforts to assist non-English speakers, check out WikiTree's Language Project.

- Nederlands Portaal= Dutch Portal. This is a new (still under construction) Sub Project of the Dutch Roots Project, we are working on translating and explaining all Wikitree related subjects in Dutch,to make Wikitree and all about it easy to understand for all Dutch speaking and/or reading members having difficulties with reading and or understanding English. Het Nederlands Portaal :Het Nederlands Portaal is een onderdeel van het Dutch Roots Project. De hoofdtaal van Wikitree is Engels. Logisch omdat Wikitree wereldwijd is en de meeste mensen die internationaal actief zijn in het Engels communiceren. Voor mensen die het Engels onvoldoende beheersen hebben wij pagina's gemaakt met de belangrijkste zaken voor Nederlandstaligen die werken met WikiTree op een rij (een nieuw sub-project dus er wordt nog aan gewerkt )
