Project: Oklahoma Land Rush

Categories: Oklahoma Projects | Oklahoma Land Rush Project



This project is for those who have profiles of, or a historical interest in, a series of land runs in Oklahoma beginning with The Oklahoma Land Rush of 1889 in which Unassigned Lands were up for grabs and entire cities were populated in a matter of hours.



Because this project is part of the Oklahoma Project, if you're interested in participating in this project, please take the following steps to join the Oklahoma Project.

  1. Follow the instructions at Oklahoma Project for requesting the US History badge.
  2. Introduce yourself to the leadership of the Oklahoma Project.


Any improvements you can make to the profiles of the Wild Wild West are welcome, but here are some specific goals we're working towards:

  • For each person:
    • All duplicates merged into the final lowest profile ID number.
    • Final ID locked, marking the profile as project protected (must be done by one of the Project Leaders)
    • Template included on the page
    • All relevant categories are added
    • Parents are correct and documented
    • Biography is cleaned up, free of any GEDCOM junk, Ancestry trees, etc., and ideally has an actual written biography.
