The overall goals of the New Mexico sub-project of the United States Project are to create and develop profiles on WikiTree for those who lived in the state of New Mexico, including people who lived in the area before it became a U.S. state. To meet these goals:

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

Ongoing List of Things to Do

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