The project does not have a Project Coordinator at this time. If you are interested, please contact a United States Project Leader.

It is not necessary that you be related to someone who lived in the state of Ohio or live there yourself to join. Anyone with an interest is welcome! If you would like to participate, please do the following:

  1. Answer our G2G post and we'll award you the United States Project badge.
  2. Add united_states and Ohio to your list of followed tags. That way you'll see all of our discussions in your G2G Feed.
  3. Add your name and a description of your current interests and activities to the list at Ohio Project Members.
  4. Please see our list of goals for a basic overview for ways you can help.

This template is for use only on profiles that are of importance to the project or need to be PPP'd and managed by the project. They are not for every single person from Ohio. A sticker might be used in that circumstance.


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

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

Ongoing List of Things to Do

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