The Global Family Reunion Project is a sub-project of the Connectors Project. The mission of Global Family Reunion project on WikiTree is to work to connect profiles to the Global Family Tree that were specifically for AJ Jacobs' Global Family Reunion, which happened in June 2015, and are featured in his book, It's All Relative: Adventures Up and Down the World's Family Tree.

One of our WikiTree Leaders, Mags, with AJ at Rootstech 2016

Inspired by author AJ Jacobs, his New York Times op-ed "Are You My Cousin?", and his book It's All Relative: Adventures Up and Down the World's Family Tree, members of the project work to make connections to our Global Family Tree, which also connects them to AJ.



  • Work to connect all those who were part of the reunion.
  • Have all connected profiles well-sourced as possible and conforming to the WikiTree Style Standards
  • Include correct parents, spouse, and children, or mark the profile as having no children or spouse so that work can continue elsewhere.
  • Use appropriate categories listed in Biography.

To-Do List

This is our list of to-dos; these folks need connected to the global tree.

If you have questions, just ask. G2G is a great place to do this, as other members can benefit from your questions, as well. The answer to your question may even already be there if you look around.

Guide for Research

  • Keep all profiles as either Open - so anyone can jump in and help - or if the person is still alive (or might be) Private with Public Biography and Tree, so it can be easily referenced for others working on the same tree.
