Mission

The Nordic Project is an umbrella project for Nordic-related free-space projects, project teams and sub-projects.

The overall mission of the Nordic project should be to bring together those who work with Nordic profiles on WikiTree and support research and collaboration.

Please note that guidelines and resources for a specific country are usually found in the sub-project of that country, as well as their own mission and goals.

Goal

The main goal of the Nordic Project is to present the Nordic profiles at WikiTree in the best way possible, and as accurate (well researched) as possible . That can, for example, be done by improving the quality of existing profiles, as well as creating new profiles, providing reliable sources and writing a short biography while doing so.

Most of what is considered reliable Scandinavian sources (mainly church books) can today be found online, usually provided for free by the National Archive of the specific country.

Nordic Sub-Projects

Denmark

  • The mission of the Denmark Project is to add and improve profiles of Danish ancestors to the world family tree.

Finland

  • The mission of the Finland Project is to unite people of Finland and those of Finnish descent in one place and help those who want to explore their Finnish roots further.

Norway

  • The mission of the Norway Project is to add and improve profiles related to Norway through history.

Sweden

  • The mission of the Sweden Project is to make the Swedish profiles on WikiTree the very best they can be. To accomplish this goal, members of the Sweden Project actively work on improving existing Swedish profiles as well as increase the number of new, well sourced, profiles for people born in Sweden.

Early Scandinavia

  • The mission of the Early Scandinavia Project is to improve (and merge) the many early Scandinavian profiles on WikiTree, both fictional and historical, until there is one profile each with some accurate information. The profiles belonging in this project should be born in a location ruled by Scandinavians and have a birth year before the year 1200. What is included in the phrase "Early Scandinavia" are the areas that would have been ruled by what in modern-day would be called the Nordic countries.
