Mission

The mission of the Italy Project is to support research and collaboration on profiles for people of Italian Heritage or origin, and their descendants worldwide. Similarly, the project is focused on creating and improving genealogies and biographies for Italian families around the world.

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!

Goals

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).
  5. give a name to "unknown" profiles: Profiles with LNAB=Unknown and Country=Italy (ask the Unknowns Team for help).
  6. bring visibility to resources specific to Italy
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.
