Are you interested in the Ohio Project?united_states.gif
  • Project Leaders: This sub-project needs a coordinator. If you are interested, please contact one of the Leaders of the United States Project
  • Add Ohio to your followed tags.
  • We use G2G for communication.
  • Here is the Ohio project's Suggestion List. Working on these is a great way to contribute.
  • Look at one of the Ohio project's example profiles to see what we hope for in profiles that are part of our project. Other excellent examples from our project and others can be found in the Examples Gallery.

Answer our United States G2G welcome post and you will be awarded the United States Project badge. Make sure to include the State (s) that you are interested in.

Templates

The template is {{United States|sub-project=Ohio}} which will give you:

This above 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.

It is not for every single person from Ohio. The following sticker might be used in that circumstance:

Living Persons {{Ohio Sticker|living=y}}
... ... ... is an Ohioan.

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 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 Catalog: Ohio Research Assistance to your Wikitree profile 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 unconnected and unsourced profiles.
  5. Create new profiles for people of Ohio 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 Ohio, as reported by the Data Doctors Project.
  7. Add profiles for the men who died in World War I, serving from Ohio in the Great War project and for the Roll of Honor project.
