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 Idaho. The following sticker might be used in that circumstance:

Deceased persons {{ Idaho Sticker}}
... ... ... was an Idahoan.
Living Persons {{ Idaho Sticker|living=y}}
... ... ... is an Idahoan.


The overall goals of the Idaho Project are to create and develop profiles on WikiTree for those who lived in Idaho, both as a U.S. state and in earlier times. 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 Catalog: Idaho Research Assistance to your Wikitree profile 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. Create new profiles for people of Idaho who are documented in a family member's profile, but might not have their own profiles yet. See Needs Profiles Created
  6. Work on Suggestions for profiles from Idaho, as reported by the Data Doctors Project.
  7. Add profiles for the men who died in World War I, serving from Idaho in the Great War project and for the Roll of Honor project.
