How to Join

Are you interested in the Italy Project?italy.gif

The Italy Project is working towards a Team structure, each Team being led by a Team Leader. Most of the teams are in the planning and development stages now, and we have a lot of work to do and welcome all members stepping in to help the groups you would enjoy being a part of. All we ask is that you actively work and.or collaborate on Italian profiles, and respond to our twice a year check-ins.

There are no requirements to have roots in a specific region or even have Italian roots to work on any team in the project. If you have a love for Italy and want to learn more while lending a helping hand, join us by posting an answer on our G2G Welcome post (listed above)!


The goals of this project and all teams, include (but are not limited to) ensuring that:
  1. all duplicates are merged into their lowest number;
  2. relevant categories are added;
  3. biographies are cleaned up, and conform to the WikiTree Style Guide (ask the Profile Improvement Project for help if needed); and
  4. profiles are connected to the main WikiTree family tree (ask the Connectors Project for help).
We also strive to ensure that family members of our worked profiles (at least 2 generations up and down) also adhere to the project goals, when and where possible.
