The coordinator of this project is Debie Allison

It is not necessary that you be related to someone who lived in the state of Washington or live there yourself to join. Anyone with an interest is welcome! If you would like to participate, please do the following:

  1. Answer our G2G post and we'll award you the US History Project badge. Let Debie know you're interested, too!
  2. Add us_history and Idaho to your list of followed tags. That way you'll see all of our discussions in your G2G Feed.
  3. Please see our list of goals for a basic overview for ways you can help.

The template is {{US History|sub-project=Idaho}} which will give you:

This 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 Idaho. A sticker might be used in that circumstance.


The overall goals of the US History Project are to create and develop profiles on WikiTree for those who lived in the state of Idaho. To meet these goals:

  1. Add Idaho-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. Space pages need to be created and developed for Idaho counties and linked to this page. Would you be interested in leading a county level project?
  2. If you have any Idaho state resources that you are willing to do lookups, please add them to the Idaho Resources Page.
  3. If you live in Idaho, please consider adding your name to the Idaho Research Assistance page.

Ongoing List of Things to Do

  1. Cemeteries in Idaho need to be photographed and the categories added to profiles on WikiTree. See the Idaho Cemeteries Project
  2. Add profiles for those who obtained land grants and homesteaded in Idaho. See the Homesteaders Project
  3. Help develop the Native Americans Project with information about Idaho state tribes.
  4. Work on Idaho's unconnected and unsourced profiles.
  5. Add profiles for the men who died in World War I, serving from Idaho for the Idaho in the Great War project and for the Roll of Honor project.
