Project: Global Community Outreach

Categories: Global Community Outreach Project

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.
