Goals

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

  1. Add Missouri-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. Need space pages created and developed for Missouri counties and linked to this page. Would you like to lead a county project?
  2. If you have any Missouri state resources that you are willing to do lookups, please add them to the Missouri Resources Page.
  3. If you live in Missouri, please consider adding Catalog: Missouri Research Assistance to your Wikitree profile page.


Ongoing List of Things to Do

  1. Cemeteries in Missouri need to be photographed and the categories added to profiles on WikiTree. See the Missouri Cemeteries Project
  2. Add profiles for those who obtained land grants and homesteaded in Missouri. See the Homesteaders Project
  3. Help develop the Native Americans Project with information about Missouri state tribes.
  4. Work on Missouri's unconnected and unsourced profiles.
  5. Create new profiles for people of Missouri 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 Missouri, as reported by the Data Doctors Project.
  7. Add profiles for the men who died in World War I, serving from Missouri in the Great War project and for the Roll of Honor project.
  8. Add profiles for the people who died in Missouri from the influenza pandemic of 1918 to 1920 for the Missouri Disasters Category. Missouri has online death certificates for this time period and the cause of death code for influenza was 10.
