Goals

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

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

Ongoing List of Things to Do

  1. Cemeteries in Nebraska need to be photographed and the categories added to profiles on WikiTree. See the Nebraska Cemeteries Project
  2. Add profiles for those who obtained land grants and homesteaded in Nebraska. See the Homesteaders Project
  3. Help develop the Native Americans Project with information about Nebraska state tribes.
  4. Work on Nebraska's unconnected and unsourced profiles.
  5. Create new profiles for people of Nebraska 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 Nebraska, as reported by the Data Doctors Project.
  7. Add profiles for the men who died in World War I, serving from Nebraska in the Great War project and for the Roll of Honor project.
