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 Hawai'i. Currently there is not a 'Hawaii Sticker' that can be used in that circumstance. A 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 Hawai'i and the other states in the union. To meet these goals:

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

Ongoing List of Things to Do

  1. Cemeteries in Hawai'i need to be photographed and the categories added to profiles on WikiTree. See the Hawai'i Cemeteries Project
  2. Work on Hawai'i's unconnected and unsourced profiles.
  3. Create new profiles for people of Hawai'i who are documented in a family member's profile, but might not have their own profiles yet. See Needs Profiles Created
  4. Work on Suggestions for profiles from Hawai'i, as reported by the Data Doctors Project.
