Project: Outlaws

Categories: Criminals | American Outlaws

The Black Sheep Project and the Outlaws sub-project have been dissolved. The profiles in this sub-project can now be found under its category:

Welcome to the Outlaws Project!
A sub-project of the Black Sheep Project

An outlaw is a lawless person or habitual criminal, one who is a fugitive from the law. They may have committed any manner of crime.

Mission: This project is to highlight the profiles of those people who became outlaws.



  1. Add profiles for outlaws, 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.

5-Star Profiles/What to do


  • Check that facts are sourced. Try to find sources for ones that aren't. Including family members
  • If there aren't dates/locations, see if you can find them and add with sources. If you can't find them, it would be helpful to add notes about where you searched so that others don't have to repeat your efforts.


  • Check if there are any duplicate family members and propose merges when necessary.



  • See if you can add photographs, pictures, maps or other visual items.
  • Add categories, project templates, stickers and/or succession boxes if appropriate.
