Welcome to the Norway Project!



This project is the effort of a group of WikiTree users interested in profiles related to Norway through history.

Project members can take primary responsibility for relevant profiles or family groups and work on merging duplicates, cleaning up profiles, adding sources, and removing incorrect information. members can join various sub-projects of specific interest or seek support from the project Leadership if it is believed a research topic is not adequately covered.

To join the project

  1. Answer our G2G post with your interests and to receive a badge.
  2. Add norway to your G2G tag feed.
  3. Ask Lena Svensson to have your name added to the Google Groups.
  4. Check out the To-Do list below to find something to help us work on, and add yourself (or ask one of us to) to that task
  5. Add your name here, to the list of participants.


For each Profile:

  • All duplicates merged into lowest number
  • All profiles containing appropriate source material
  • Relevant Categories added where required
  • Relevant Template added; See Project Template
  • Biography cleaned up and written, using the WikiTree Style Guide (can work with Profile Improvement Project for help)

In some cases, where there is dispute or there are issues that are difficult to resolve, for example, it may be necessary to manage change through an interest group. In these cases it might require a Profile to be Project Protected. Please discuss with a Leader if this is thought necessary.

In some cases, such as pre-1500 profiles, it may be necessary to gain assistance from a Leader to help amend profiles. Please discuss the requirement with a Project Lead.
