Project: Ireland

Categories: Ireland Project

Welcome to the new Ireland Project also known as the Irish Roots Project!

The Irish Roots Project and the Ireland Project have been merged into one project.

This project is the effort of a group of WikiTree users interested in profiles related to Irish people and their descendants around the globe. The leaders of this project are Maria Maxwell and Richard Devlin (click their name to contact them by private message). For a full list of participants, see the badge report.

Goals

Our goal here is to create a structure of Teams of people with like interests; to collaborate and Improve profiles within those interests. Our final goal is to make all Irish Profiles the best they can be, one profile at a time. Well sourced and well written. Here are some specific goals we're working towards:

Trinity College
** Work on cleaning up profiles that sit in the Irish Roots Profile Maintenance Categories and Suggestions list.
    • Biography is cleaned up, free of any GEDCOM junk, Ancestry trees, etc., and ideally has an actual written biography.
    • Stickers are added to profiles where appropriate see Ireland Badges Templates and Stickers and below
